Wargosuchus is a genus of baurusucid crocodile that lived in South America during the Late Cretaceous. At the time of description (and writing), Wargosuchus is only known from a single incomplete skull, mostly of the tooth bearing bones of the right hand side. Despite this lack of fossil remains, Wargosuchus is still notable for bearing a similarity to the genus Pissarrachampsa.
