Curious to know the ID on these teeth. They were found some time ago in Maryland from a Paleocene location and both are about 3/4" long. I was initially thinking they might be Jaekelotodus robustus, but not 100% sure because Paleohypotodus rutoti looks a little similar. Unfortunately elasmo.com doesn't have any examples of Maryland specimens of J. robustus for comparison. Your thoughts?
Doctor Mud posted a topic in Fossil IDHi everyone, I've put this post in the Fossil ID area as I think it is a suitable place for it. I'm in the process of identifying 1000s of Moroccan sand tiger teeth and I've been accumulating all the information I could find. There is no one piece of literature that does it all. I hope to update this through time and get feedback from those more knowledgeable than myself that all the information is correct. Let me know if I have made a mistake and I will correct it. I hope this will be a useful resource for everyone. First, here is Arambourg 1952: http://hybodus.free.fr/maroc/Arambourg%20%20&%20alii%20Vert%E9br%E9s%20fossiles%20des%20gisements%20de%20 (Copy and paste into your browser) Now, there have been a few revisions since 1952. Here is what I could find: Name in Arambourg 1952 New valid name (if applicable) O. whitei Arambourg, 1952 Striatolamia whitei (Arambourg, 1952) O. macrota premut. striata (Winkler) 1874 Striatolamia macrota (Agassiz, 1843) O. robusta var. africana Arambourg, 1952 Carcharias robustus africanus (Arambourg, 1952) O. hopei s./sp. atlantica Arambourg, 1952 O. koerti (Stromer) 1910 Brachycarcharias koerti (Stromer, 1910) O. tingitana Arambourg, 1952 Carcharias tingitana (Arambourg, 1952) O. speyeri Dart. et Casier, 1943 O. substriata Stromer, 1910 Carcharias substriatus (Stromer, 1910) O. substriata mut. atlasi Arambourg, 1952 Brachycarcharias atlasi (Arambourg, 1952) O. vincenti (Woodward) 1899 Brachycarcharias lerichei (Casier, 1946) O. winkleri Lerice 1905 Note that O. stands for Odontaspis. If the space in the "new valid name" column is blank, then the name in Arambourg 1952 is still valid.
