Hello!

Your tooth is partial, so it's a little more difficult to assign to genus/species.

I'm not familiar with your area and not well-versed in this kind of teeth, but I think you're right with the ID.

I haven't a better ID than Galeorhinus sp. for the tooth in question.

 

Try to compare with some of the teeth below:
