Ozan Formation Mosasaur Tooth

Othniel C. Marsh

Recommended Posts

I recently came across this mosasaur tooth from the Ozan Formation for sale, and wondered if it would be possible to identify to a genus or species level. It measures around 1.5cm from the tip of the tooth to its base. It is my understanding that @pachy-pleuro-whatnot-odon is something of an expert on marine reptiles. What do you make of the tooth?






Thanks in advance for any proposals

Tricky, since it's so small and worn, and with photographs that don't really show too much of the tooth's features. Looks plioplatecarpine, though...
