Catalog Number: CG-0070
It’s been a little while since a new Petalodus ohioensis tooth has been found locally. As luck would have it, a new one showed up. This will be a short post, as the tooth is currently missing it’s cusp. While breaking apart the rock, I happened to split this one right across the crown. I recovered the bottom portion with a large sized root, but the top is currently missing. Interestingly, it does present a nice cross-section through the crown. I’ll save a final examination for later, as I’m still searching the small area for the crown.
There was a trilobite pygidium (tail) next to it as well. This likely will become a separate specimen.
