Cretaceous mammal tooth? Or Pleistocene?


Recommended Posts


Found this tooth while processing some Kemp Clay (Maastrichtian) matrix. It is possible my sample was contaminated with Pleistocene material. I've looked around for similar teeth online, both Cretaceous and Pleistocene, but have come up empty-handed so far. 


The crown is sort of "bowl" shaped and the rim is ornamented with varying cusps. When viewed from below, I can see four apical foramina. It kinda looks like some of the metatherian teeth online, but I haven't seen an exact match.

doesn't look Cretaceous but we may need closer up shots to actually ID it.

The pictures are actually huge when you click on them, good enough to ID the finger ;)
