Does anybody recognize this? I'm guessing a dermal denticle, but the elongated shape is unusual to me. Other microfauna in the matrix includes shark(cladodont) teeth, fish teeth, gastropods, goniatites, crinoid and echinoid plates and spines, ostracods, brachiopods, bryozoan, and conodonts.

ynot posted a topic in Micro-paleontologyHey Y'All, I found this cool little denticle while searching some micromatrix that I collected last year. It is the only one of this type that i have found so far. Just thought that Y'All might like to see it. It is 2.25 millimeters long. I tried to get different light and angles to show the spiral ridges that run the length of this denticle, and match up to the cusps around the edges. Hope You find it entertaining! Tony PS I hope I identified it correctly- but with My track record I would not be surprised if it is actually a tooth.
