Because the known remains are so poor, the genus is now regarded as a "nomen dubium". Some material has been referred to the genera "Aegyptosuchus" and "Stomatosuchus", both named by Stromer from the Bahariya material.

Though not superstitious, he decided not to disturb the mummies. However, he later was involved in the removal of two child mummies from
to a museum and reported he was haunted by the children in his dreams. The phenomena did not stop until the mummy of the father was re-united with the children in the museum. He came to the conclusion that mummies should not be displayed, though it was a lesser evil than allowing the general public into the tombs. Hawass also recorded an incident of a sick young boy who loved Ancient Egypt and was subject to a "miracle" cure in the Egyptian Museum when he looked into the eyes of the mummy of King Ahmose I. Thereafter, the boy read everything he could find on Ancient Egypt, especially the Hyksos period.
