Hi everyone, yesterday I recieved a lot of shark teeth, 20 of which came from the Egem Clay, Tielt Formation, Egem, Belgium that date back to the Ypresian, Eocene. 
The teeth are very small sized so I tried a macro lens to take pictures (I apologize for the not always clear images), and I believe most belong to Physogaleus secundus. 
But I wanted to share my thoughts on the ID's of the teeth and see what your imput would be as I am not an expect on Eocene shark teeth. 

Tooth 1: Physogaleus secundus

Tooth 17: Physogaleus secundus? Not sure, looks a little different in morphology then the rest.

This one is probably a lateral Abdounia. I agree with your other Physogaleus IDs.
