Upper Triassic Tooth Identification (Pterosaur?)

Recommended Posts

FossilRobert

I recently purchased a small lot of Bull Canyon Formation, New Mexico teeth, most of which were Phytosaurid. Then i noticed this tooth and how eerily similar it is too Pterosaur teeth from Morocco. 

 

From what i've read, there have been documented Eudimorphodon fossils collected from the Chinle Group, however i cannot find pictures for comparison. The closest teeth i can find from New Mexico are Preondactylus and Peteinosaurus teeth that have been put up for sale on multiple websites, though the information provided with them is unhelpful.

 

I've included a photo of the "front", "back" and a side profile of the tooth. If clearer photos are needed to assist with identification, i can get some taken and uploaded.

Thank you for the information you've provided, Troodon.

 

I've been scanning around looking for other teeth collected from the Bull Canyon Formation and haven't come across anything close enough to come to a conclusion on this specimen. I had considered the possibility that a KK Siroccopteryx tooth somehow managed to get into the box, however the preservation color is all wrong.

 

The search continues!

I have the same problem with a tooth the seller declared as a raptor tooth:

 

I think the tooth looks similar to yours. Perhaps now I can re-label my indeterminate tooth...
