Abstract

The teeth of six dinosaur taxa (Carcharodontosauridae indet., Dromaeosauridae indet., Troodontidae indet., Brachiosauridae indet., Iguanodontoidea indet., and Nodosauridae indet.) are identified and described from the early Cenomanian of the Charentes region, western France. The composition and paleoecology of this coastal, insular fauna is discussed. The Charentes dinosaur assemblage shares affinities with Asiamerican and Gondwanan faunas. This clarifies and highlights the role of the European islands in the paleobiogeography of Cretaceous dinosaurs.
