Hi everyone!

I recently acquired some dolphin & shark teeth, but they weren't ID'd so I was wondering if some of you might be able to help me out if possible.

 

The first are a set of small dolphin teeth found in Hoevenen, Antwerp in Belgium (Miocene, 15 - 10 mya) 
And I was wondering if they could be ID'd to down to genus? I've read Eurhinodelphis is a common find and that there are quite a few more named and unnamed species to be found there.

The other fossils that I hoped to be ID'd are 5 tiny shark teeth from Oosterzele (Lede formation), Belgium (Eocenen, Lutetian, approx. 44 million years old) 
I've searched this website as they has a database with I believe all the species found there, but I am not confident and skilled enough to ID them properly.

My best guesses are that the first 3 teeth belong to the same species and the most common at Oosterzele, which are worn down Otodus auriculatus teeth. 
As for the other teeth I don't really know, so I really would appreciate some help and input. :) 
Thanks in advance!

Hey Ken,

 

For the dolphin tooth, I would think Delphinodon dividum but I am not 100% sure.

 

For the teeth of Oosterzele, Otodus auriculatus is incorect, they are found there but they are rare ( bigger and serrated )

the most common teeth there are Striatolamnia macrota and Brachicarcharias sp. 

 

the 1st tooth from the left is Brachicarcharias sp. , I 'll have to check with Natalie for the other teeth. ( I think the 2nd one might be a Jaekelotodus triagonalis )

Hi, 

 

The first is like Kevin said, Brachycarharias lereichi. The second tooth is Striatolamnia macrota

3 and 5 looks Physogaleus secundus. 

To be sure, I need a better picture of nr 4
