It is Otodus obliquus, probably from Morocco.

Is this an angustiden? Or is it some other kind of sharks tooth?

Note that the trivial name is angustidens with an "s" at the end. The word is both singular and plural -- one angustidens and fifteen angustidens.

It is, I believe, a Latin compound word meaning "narrow tooth." (Latin scholars, feel free to correct me.)
