Just want to get some expertise opinions on this particular tooth since Moroccan Mosasaur teeth are some of the hardest thing to ID. I have had this tooth for quite a while now and have assumed it to be a Beaugei tooth specimen due to it's facetted nature which I assume whether correctly or not, that it's a key feature of this specie. Though I can't be so sure although, I have always assumed that a Platecarpus teeth specimens have always been small like the ones in the picture below: But it doesn't mean that a Platecarpus won't grow into a large size thus their teeth will also grow, but I have never seen large mosasaur teeth with striation like the smaller specimens in the picture above, so it makes me wonder if the Platecarpus once they grow and their teeth enlarge, do the striations change into facetted feature like the large tooth that I assumed to be a Beaugei? Any expert input or opinions would be appreciated to shine light on my specimen so I can label it correctly with enough information. Thx
