Description
Original diagnose after Reinecke et al. (2020) p. 110 [29177]: Medium-sized pristiophorid teeth, up to 1.6 mm wide and 1.0 mm high. Dental pattern gradient-monognathic heterodont. Teeth in anterior to lateral files (Figs 30A-D) with upright or distally inclined, central cusp and moderately wide, laterally sloping heels lacking cusplets. Labial crown face convex and smooth without an axial vertical ridge; apron very weak or absent; ornamentation absent on basal labial crown faces; laterolingual crown faces partly smooth or with a transverse ridge, but no folds or tubercles present. Mesial/distal cutting edges extending continuously from apex to lateral crown margins. Uvula conical, moderately broad and long. Root triangular to mesio-distally extended, anaulacorhize, laterally nearly as wide or wider than crown basis. Few foramina present on laterolingual root faces and axially on labial root face.

Remarks
valid after Reinecke et al. (2020) p. 110 [29177];
