Cusped benedini?

Recommended Posts

Are these cusped benedinis? My first thought was otodus obliquus. From GMR, greeneville NC. Was found in a mix of cretaceous, miocene and pliocene teeth.

I’ve seen serrated cusped teeth that are extremely worn come out of the creek. Probably auriculatus. There have been other Eocene teeth found in Greenville.

They are too thick to be auriculatus imo. Also the orange is good enough condition to where I am 99% sure there are no serrations

I'm not entirely convinced that these are P. benedeni either, a picture of the other side of the teeth might help! :)

So it's no Otodus for sure, right?

My opinion would be Otodus auriculatus. However it is pretty worn so hard to say for sure.

I agree after looking hard. Always hard to tell on worn teeth though
