Abstract

The right mandibular ramus of a lizard from the Oldman Formation (Late Campanian: Upper Cretaceous) of Alberta is described. The specimen is ascribed to the suborder Scincomorpha, family Teiidae, and is placed in the genus Chamops, being closely allied to Chamops segnis from the Lance Formation (Maestrichtian). No specific identification is given, as the dentition is insufficiently well-preserved for this purpose. The specimen is believed to have formed part of the faeces of a crocodile of the genus Leidyosuchus.
