An incompletely definable spe-cies, probably of Myliobatis, is indicated by the following median teeth from the Red Crag of Suffolk. The coronal contour is sharply raised in the middle, as in M. jugosus, Leidy, differing only from the latter tooth in the greater relative breadth of the rounded elevation.
