Artzosuchus is an extinct genus of basal crocodylomorph. Specimens have been found from the Üüden Sair locality of the Djadochta Formation in Mongolia and date back to the Campanian stage of the Late Cretaceous. Because of the fragmentary nature of the material associated with the genus, its classification beyond that of a basal crocodylomorph is indeterminant[1].
