I found this tooth in some Lee Creek micro matrix from Aurora, North Carolina. It measures 6mm. After doing some research, I believe it is a Carcharoides catticus tooth. Can anyone confirm?

It looks like a posterior Odontaspis or Carcharias.

Here's my catticus:

They are very thin/flat compared to a sand tiger and have comparatively large, triangular cusps.

I'm thinking posterior Odontaspis ferox. Don't know if it exists in the North Carolina Miocene, but here in the Antwerp Neogene that would be An awesome find..
