Hi everyone! 

Today is received a bunch of unidentified fossil shark teeth found in a now closed sand quarry in Lede Sand, Lede Formation, Balegem, Oosterzele, Belgium (Eocene, Lutetian, 44 mya).
I was hoping some of you might help me out with confirming the ID's of the teeth.
I have some idea's what the ID might be, but I am not entirely sure about most.

Tooth 1 & 2: Definiatly Sandtiger teeth with fine stiations on the crown.
That makes me believe that these are probably Striatolamia macrota

Tooth 3: Same goes for this one, I also believe this might be Striatolamia macrota

Tooth 4: My favorite tooth of the bunch, I am doubting between Brachycarcharias lerichei  or Hypotodus verticalis (Upper lateral)

Tooth 5: No stiations and a worn cusp 3 mm away fro the base of the crown

28 --> what do you think about Anomotodon Novus ?

(look these ones in my post, they look very similar)

 

 

Can you help me with these (all from Balegem too)?

 

#T1: Carcharias sp (?) or Striatolamia Macrota (?)

#T2: Otodus Catticus (???) or maybe, Brachycarcharias Lerichei or Hypotodus verticalis (upper lateral) [On the box was written Otodus Catticus, but I don't know if it belongs to Balegem as specie...]
