Sloth tooth for ID please

Found this sloth tooth this past weekend and was hopeful someone could help figure out which sloth it's from, it's from the Peace river area of Florida and would be Pleistocene in age: ) thanks for looking

Jeff, It is relatively limited.  Start with a picture or photo of Paramylodon like in Paramylodon Harlani

If that does not match your tooth , step to Megalonyx like Megalonyx Jeffersonii

If neither of those... you have something reallly rare for this area
