The Basel museum is predominantly a mammal repository. There are a few cabinets of crocodylomorph fossils, mostly scraps. But they do have a few good skulls I was interested in seeing.
There was a nice, nearly complete, 3D Diplocynodon ratelli skull and jaws. Its sutures were almost as good as that braincase in Paris. It’s also an example of why modern fossil restoration doesn’t restore parts with similarly-colored material. Back in the day, fossils were restored purely for display, so they wanted them to look as un-jarring as possible. Nowadays, they care more about making it easier for future scientists to tell what’s real from what’s fake. It’s not always as easy as it sounds because some of them do a really good job of making their parts look real.
There were also two skulls of a species that used to be called Hispanochampsa muelleri, but it turned out to be synonymous with Diplocynodon, so now it’s D. muelleri.
They also had a partial skeleton of an Italian Diplocynodon. I had originally planned to go to Italy to see more of them, but that didn’t work out, unfortunately.
They had a few other crocodylomorphs outside the crown group, as well.
