Libycosuchus is an extinct genus of North African crocodylomorph possibly related to Notosuchus. It was terrestrial, living approximately 95 million years ago in the Cenomanian stage of the Late Cretaceous. Fossil remains have been found in the Baharije Formation in Egypt, making it contemporaneous with the crocodilian Stomatosuchus, and dinosaurs Spinosaurus and Rugops.
