What do these teeth fragments belong too? ( Missouri )


Recommended Posts

Location is in Missouri

The area is dated to the Pennsylvanian 

most likely Raytown, Wyandotte Limestone


I have found a few Prehistoric fish teeth in the area such as Orodus, Acrodus, Petalodus and some of their fragments. I believe the right sided one could be a Petalodus but I was not sure since I have not found a black tooth in the area besides this fragment. As for the left, I have no idea but I did note it had beautiful dimples along its surface. While they may be broken I hope that they can provide enough detail for identification!

The first does look like a Petalodus crown fragment. The second is a fragment of a cochliodont tooth plate. Maybe Deltodus but these are tough (at least for me) to assign to specific taxa, especially when incomplete.
