Brule Formation Teeth ID Assistance

Recommended Posts

Paul R.

Hi all, trying to get some id help with some teeth from the Brule Formation, Nebraska.  Most i think are oreodont, mesohippus and similar.  Unfortunately dentition is not my forte, so any assistance would be appreciated.  Tried to take photos from three different angles to help.

 

Set 1, 2-specimens

Set 2, 3-specimens (lower 2 mesohippus maybe)

Paul you are correct most specimens are oreodont (looks like Merycoidodon) and Mesohippus.Set 1 ,upper teeth are oreodont,lower teeth are Mesohippus. Set 2 and 5 are all Mesohippus (it is not impossible that some of the teeth are a small species of Miohippus but you can't tell them apart from lower teeth alone).Set 3 are partial maxillae of oreodnt and Mesohippus.Set 4 is a

lower jaw fragment with a dp2 of a juvenile  Subhyracodon, a rhino.

Comparing the photos to the section of Oreodont I have from the Orella member, I'd agree with that for a few of the pieces for sure!
