Hello fossil lovers, i bought those bones at Sainte-Marie-aux-mines and i need help for identification. All are from Kem Kem.
 

1 : I think an abelisauroïd (?Noasaurid) cervical but i need confirmation.

 

2 : no idea about this vert.

 

3 : distal caudal vert but no idea for the identification. Croc ? Dino ? 
 

4 : Spinosaurid mid-cervical vert but i need to know the exact position

If at all identifiable to the level you're hoping to (I wouldn't know what diagnostic features to look out for in dinosaur/theropod material), @LordTrilobite and @Haravex might be able to help out here. They've both got extensive experience with material from the Kem Kem Group.

I think you're on the right path here. Nr 1 does kinda look like an Abelisaurid cervical. But it's quite a bit more slender. So I would agree with Abelisauroid cervical.

 

2 looks like it might be a croc caudal. But hard to tell for sure without the neural arch.

 

3 is indeed a distal caudal. I would lean towards dino. But not sure.

 

4 Does indeed look like a spinosaurid anterior to mid cervical.
