Description
Original description of Woodward, 1889 p. 400-401 [2593]:
Type. Detached teeth; British Museum. Teeth of moderate size, the largest attaining a total height of about 0‘018; crown elevated, smooth, and much compressed, with a single pair of broad acuminate lateral denti-cles, and one or two smaller outer pairs; root short, the branches diverging at a very wide angle, and the nutritive foramen situated in a groove. The teeth named Galeocerdo tremauxi, Sauvage (=Lamna, p. 409), seem to approach this species most closely, but are distinguished by the relatively deeper root and the larger size of the lateral denticles. The so-called Otodus serratus, Agassiz (Poiss. Foss. vol. iii. 1843, p. 272, pi. xxxii. figs. 27, 28), is founded upon teeth also very similar, hut differing in the irregularity of the lateral denticles ; these teeth probably pertaining to Odontaspis hronni.
Form. & Loc- Banian: Mont Aimd, Marne, France.
P. 5761. Two type specimens.
