Receiving this gorgeous but mysterious specimen is from Upper Pennsylvanian limestone dated around 290-300 million years ago from somewhere around Kansas City. Looks like a tooth to me and my best guess would be orodus? But I have little experience with Pennsylvanian shark teeth in general and especially from this area, also cannot find a comparison elsewhere online. Any help will be appreciated.
We have recently picked up some rather interesting micro shark teeth from the Paleozoic. Originally this was our way to get some older shark fossils to show students but I am actually pretty interested in continuing to collect micros from this period. First up, the oldest Chondrichthyes fossils we have and as I understand it, the second oldest yet found. Denticles Upper Ordovician Harding Sandstone Colorado I read that these had been given a name, Tezakia. Not sure if that is still valid or if these denticles match those described.
