  1. hoffmanni tooth or beaugei tooth ?

    I bought this tooth as Mosasaurus hoffmanni on internet site. Size: 2,32 inch Location: Oued Zem, Morocco Formation: Ouled Abdoun Basin (Phosphate beds) Is it really hoffmanni ? or beaugei ?
  2. Chenanisaurus barbaricus was described from the phosphate beds of the Ouled Abdoun basin of Morocco. Specifically the Holotype was found in Sidi Chennane couche ( bed ) III and all the teeth were Premaxillary however a isolated Maxillary tooth was found at Sidi Daoui. Family: Abelisauridae No formal formation designated, ( Late Maastrichtian ca. 112 Ma) Locality: Ouled Abdoun Basin, Couche III at Sidi Chennane Premaxillary Teeth: Tooth 1) CBR: .69, CHR: 2.14 Tooth 2) CBR: .76, CHR: 2.13 Mesial Density : 8.5 per 5 mm at tip and midline Mesial Density : 12 per 5 mm at base Distal Density : 8 per 5 mm at tip and midline Distal Density : 13 per 5 mm at base Denticles are Chisel shaped Carinae on both edges extend to the base Cross-section at base D shaped Longrich, N.R.; Pereda-Suberbiola, X.; Jalil, N.-E.; Khaldoune, F.; Jourani, E. (2017). "An abelisaurid from the latest Cretaceous (late Maastrichtian) of Morocco, North Africa". Cretaceous Research. doi:10.1016/j.cretres.2017.03.021 Lateral Teeth: CBR: ?, CHR: ? Mesial Density : 2 mm at tip and midline Mesial Density : higher at base Distal Density : 2 mm at tip and midline Distal Density : higher at base Denticles are Chisel shaped Carinae on both edges extend to the base Lateral Teeth compressed, blade like Mesial edge is strongly recurved Distal edge is straight Buffetaut, E., Escuillié, F., Pohl, B., 2005, "First theropod dinosaur from the Maastrichtian phosphates of Morocco", Kaupia 14: 3-8 Example of a couple in my collection
  3. Some very large +5" Rooted Mosasaur teeth and Jaws are being offered for sale. The crowns appear to have been reattached and may be a composite. This is not your typical white fill that you normally see from Morocco but a darker blend to be more natural and not stand out. Typical of the type of work that you now see coming from Spain. Unfortunately there is no mention of any repair done to these items. More reason to me even more attentive with any Moroccan material. Use caution if interested and post your desires here before you purchase A sampling of the teeth being offered..... Tooth 2 Tooth 3
  4. The attached paper describes a diverse pterosaur assemblage from the late Maastrichtian of Morocco that includes not only Azhdarchidae but the youngest known Pteranodontidae and Nyctosauridae. The fossils described come from the upper Maastrichtian phosphates of the Ouled Abdoun Basin, in northern Morocco http://journals.plos.org/plosbiology/article?id=10.1371/journal.pbio.2001663
  5. For those collectors that love Moroccan dinosaur material I have some good news and some not so good news. The good news is that we finally have an Abelsaurid described from Morocco its called Chenanisaurus barbaricus . The not so good news is that its NOT from the Kem Kem Beds but from the Maastrichtian Phosphate Mines in the Ouled Abdoun basin. . I reported about this theropod back in 2015 and a jaw, with teeth, was subsequently found which enabled paleontologists to describe this new species. This is what is lacking in the Kem Kem Beds. We should have a march in Morocco to protest lack of Jaws.... Two teeth from my collection Now that we have a name I raise the red flag with all collectors to be cautious of individuals trying to sell Carcharodontosaurus teeth from Kem Kem as this species. The best way insure your getting the correct locality is to have it on a matrix slab. Phosphate matrix is very different than the Kem Kem's. These teeth have been quite rare and I acquired the only two I've seen but now we have a name that always seems to attract entrepreneurs in Morocco . Dentary teeth should follow typical Abelsaurid morphology with the distal side being very perpendicular to the base.
