I have a few more micro shark teeth from the Mesaverde formation that I need ID help with. Up first is one of the coolest teeth I found in the micro mix. Roughly 2mm with some very cool looking cusplets. I originally thought it might be a Scyliorhinus tooth but I studied some teeth from other and I think I was wrong about cat shark. I thought maybe a tiny Protolamna but that is just a guess. I am actually pretty stumped. Any suggestions or thoughts are appreciated.
I had some excellent luck with the micro fossils from the Mesaverde formation today. I came across a really beautiful tooth that I believe belonged to a Bamboo Shark. I think this tiny 1mm beauty is a Chiloscyllium tooth. I am not real sure what else this might be. It is attached to a tiny piece of matrix so I can not get pictures of the other side. The described species from the formation is Chiloscyllium missouriense and I found little on line about that particular species. This micro matrix comes from Colorado. The paper I have describes the Mesaverde in Wyoming. Th
