Description
Original description of Woodward, 1889 [2593]
1862. A palate, or part of a palate, Mor-ris & Roberts, Quart. Journ. Geol. Soc. vol. xviii. p. 105, pi. iii. fig. 5. Type. Four associated teeth, in natural relative positions; British Museum. A small species. Teeth comparatively thick; the inner two thirds of the crown round and tumid, rapidly thinning outwards laterally.
Form. & Loc. Carboniferous Limestone (zone of Rhynchonella pleurodon): Farlow, Shropshire.
36469. Type specimen, figured, of the natural size, by Morris and Roberts, he. cit. Two symmetrical pairs of teeth are shown, one behind the other. Of one pair each tooth is approximately as broad as long, while of the succeeding (or preceding) pair the length equals only about two thirds of the breadth. The appearance of tapering both anteriorly and posteriorly is due to accidental fracture. Presented by O. E. Roherts, Esq., 1862.
