My question is exactly in the title, Can you identify ray teeth without locality info? I got some as a gift a long time ago and have no information on location and age and was wondering if its possible to identify to genus or even family

I think it would be possible with some species. Post some good close up pics and lets give it a shot.

Here’s some pictures, it looks like there are 3 different species. There is also this other fossil, I got from the same place and it looks like a part of a fish jaw, can you confirm this and is there anything else that can be said about it scale is in inches

The preservation of these looks similar to those from Morocco, which are between Cretaceous and Eocene in age. The last fossil doesn't look like a ray.

Fish jaw is a candidate, but I can't really say much to back that up.
