Caturus ?megadontus MARTILL 1985 (?= ?Osteorachis leedsi WOODWARD 1897)

Jurassic, Callovian

Oxford Clay, Peterborough Member

Kings dyke, Whittlesey, Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, UK


A tooth of the large, macropredatory caturid Caturus ?megadontus MARTILL 1985. MARTILL & HUDSON 1991 consider this species potentially synonymous with the contemporaneous and highly fragmentary caturid ?Osterorachis leedsi WOODWARD 1897, which would make ‘Caturus leedsi’ the valid name for this taxon.
