Fossil ID help

Found this at Aurora over the weekend at the festival.  Wasn’t 100% sure on ID.  I’m assuming an Angustidens or chubutensis but would love to hear what y’all think.

If you found it at Aurora ... chances are you've got a Chubutensis on your hands.

 

Whoo weee... a pretty one too.

 

Cheers,

Thank y’all for the help.  I was pretty excited.  This was our first visit there and we hit GMR on Sunday also for the first time.  Would this be a posterior tooth based on the shape?

Yes.

 

+1 on chubutensis, though I call these little guys "meglets" :D
