Madtsoia is an extinct genus of madtsoiid snake. It is known from the Eocene of Argentina (M. bai), the Paleocene of Brazil (M. camposi), the Late Cretaceous (Campanian) of Spain (M. laurasiae), the Late Cretaceous of India (M. pisdurensis),[1] and the Late Cretaceous (Campanian-Maastrichtian) of Madagascar and possibly Niger (M. madagascariensis).
