Will need a straight on view of the chewing surface for ID.

Several other angles would be helpful.

Thank you for your idea.

It must be difficult I guess to find a subspecies that the tooth belonged to?

I would put more pictures as soon as possible. ;)

With such a small fragment it will be hard. But you can get an idea of a few that were in China.

It looks like mastodon to me. It's still tough to ID, but to me it looks like the enamel points up like a mastodon tooth. Can you post more pics? :zzzzscratchchin:

Some member of the Elephantidae; I do not know which might have lived there then.

This is an old phylogeny (1986), and much has been learned about Chinese fossils since then. But, I'll post it here in the hope that it still provides an overview.
