Kikokuryu posted a topic in Fossil IDI recently purchased a Theropoda indet. tooth from the Lourinhã Formation of Lourinhã, Portugal. I wasn't expecting much initially since it looked like an incomplete tooth and the seller tends to go the safe route with their IDs if it's too vague. But, the serration count was similar to that of the Marshosaurus-like megalosaurid teeth based on @Troodon's guide on the dinosaurs of Portugal. Maybe it's just wishful thinking, but I wanted to see if anyone else had some input before I slap that good old theropoda indet. label on the display. The distal serrations is split d
Hello everyone, (I'm new to this forum so please forgive me if I'm missing something important). I've recentenly saw a theropod tooth listed for sale.

I've tried to read upon some information, but i've come to notice that there is very little avaliable. I saw a post on this forum saying that theropod teeth from El Mers are still under debate, and that teeth from the Bathonian section require the gypsum matrix to be present in order to identify it as being Batho
Hi everyone, I have here an indeterminate theropod tooth from from the Tiouraren Fm of Niger. The locality given to me was Tiouraren Hill, Téneré Desert. I've used Troodon's thread to narrow down the possibilities: 1.23" long 0.49" wide Distal serration density is 2.33/mm (mid-carina) Mesial serration density is 2.33/mm (near the tip; no serrations visible mid-carina) It's a partial tooth so I cannot get accurate base/height ratios. I'd appreciate any help identifying this. Thank you, Bellamy
Hi. Just thought I’d try to verify the identification of this tooth. The seller claims it is a Megalosaurid tooth from the Lourinha Formation of Portugal. Unfortunately this is the best image of the tooth I have for now. Will try to obtain others.
