Saurornitholestes Tooth?

Recommended Posts

JurassicParkCarnotaurus

I picked up this tooth a while ago and the description was raptor tooth from Hell Creek. I was thinking Sauronitholestes (Wow that’s hard to spell with autocorrect messing me up) but hopefully you guys will help Id it. Thanks! {sorry about the picture quality if it is too bad I totally understand}C932BC98-8453-45B5-A3CD-5A5B8716034C.thumb.jpeg.f4522ead88c494ee28095b2e29c246a8.jpeg1BA56DAD-3759-4C98-AD93-3F54FEECD989.thumb.jpeg.45ac0e126117de35016203d24869f7c6.jpeg

Saurornitholestes is not described from the Hell Creek Fm. and only known from older deposits. The small raptor,  Dromaeosaurid, that is known from there is Acheroraptor.   Your tooth probably that just seeing how recurved it is.  However without much closer photos and a good look at the serrations on both edges it would be difficult to positively assign.

I am not saying it is an example of that taxon you have there,BTW.

I just wanted to figure the taxon mentioned,so people would get an idea of its dental morphology

Do you have any visible serrations on the outside edge?  If yes are they denser, more of them than the inside ones?

 

Here is one of my Acheroraptor posterior teeth.  Looks very similar to yours.  Denticles look similar but hard to see yours.  Please verify
