Hello!
Is it tooth of shark from genus Galeocerdo? And if it possible to identify species?
Western Ukraine, Lviv region. Probably, Neogene.
Thanks!

Genus Geleocerdo, confirmed.  

 

Age of sediments nd size (we can't tell by the hashmarks) will help decide if G. Cuvier or G. aduncus

I agree it is a Galeocerdo tooth. 

 

I'm leaning more towards G. aduncus. G. cuvier teeth have more complex serrations. Age and size would help confirm the ID.

I dont know certainly age. From this region G. aduncus is known from Neogene, Miocene.
And You can check a size, on both photos are line in mm on a top of them.
