fun stuff, Theo.  The last tooth is tough to see, but you are right, it is not a rodent.  Jerry hooker Id'ed the rodent incisor; can he look at this one for you?  he is THE guy to ask on your island.

@doushantuo Thanks for including those resources, I've read similar papers before but never those two so they'll make for interesting reading. Also I've never come across that rodent paper before either so that'll be really useful! Thank you!

 

@jpc Yeah I might give him a try and see what his opinion is, from the looks of things I'd tentatively say it's perhaps a heavily worn premolar but it'll be interesting to see what he says.

now that I look at it again, I would say worn premolar is probably what it is. If so, it is pretty complex as premolars go.  I am not sure what we are looking at in the last photo.  Can you post a side on view?  From both sides.

@jpc Sure, here's a couple of side views of the tooth. It's definitely an odd little tooth, doesn't look like the usual anthracothere premolars especially in the wear pattern.
