Possible Pliosaur tooth from Goulmima?

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

 

I was wondering if this tooth could be from a Pliosaur. It is from the Goulmima area in Morocco. It is 8.8cm in length and some of the striations remain near the tip (the size is what makes me think Pliosaur). Thanks.

Thank you for the paper (it is very helpful!). I am just about convinced it is from a Pliosaur due to the size and robustness of the tooth. I can't think of any other creatures described from the area that could produce a tooth like this.
