Thank you!  I couldn’t believe my eyes at first when I saw this tooth in the package; I have asked Indonesians before, including the contact I got this from, and they’ve all said that they haven’t ever seen or found any, and yet here it is!  Dalatias is a scarce tooth to find, regardless of locality.
