Unidentified Tooth or Rostral Bone ?

This measures 17mm in length and is the only one of its type I have found to date. It was found in the Intraformational Conglomerate (which is also known as the Basal Bone Bed) of the Westbury Formation, Penarth Group of Aust Cliff, South Gloucestershire.

This partial 'shark crushing tooth' measures 17mm in length (so is evidently longer if complete) and the crown width is 3mm. It is the only one of its type I have found to date. The deep root is 2/3 the total height which measures 6mm. It was found in the Intraformational Conglomerate (which is also known as the Basal Bone Bed) of the Westbury Formation, Penarth Group of Aust Cliff, South Gloucestershire.

This jaw fragment looks fishy but the single tooth has me foxed! . Note the smooth dome shaped crown with bifurcating root. The scale is shown in (cm). It was found in the Intraformational Conglomerate (which is also known as the Basal Bone Bed) of the Westbury Formation, Penarth Group of Aust Cliff, South Gloucestershire.

Unidentified Fish Tooth ?

Found in the UK Bathonian, Jurassic. This is the only one I have found to date and it measures 10mm in height. It was found in the clay layer just beneath the Transitional Layer of the Ardley Member, Great Oolite Series of Ardley, Oxfordshire. Sadly this site is a landfill site and no longer open to the public.

This is a beautiful unidentified fish jaw. It measures 18mm in length. It was found in the Lower Oxford Clay, Callovian Stage, Jurassic  of Peterborough, Cambridgeshire.

Labrus sp. Fish Tooth (?) Eocene

Found at Creeksea near Burnham on Crouch, Essex. This is the only one I have found to date at this location. The scale is in (mm). It was found in Bed 'D' of the London Clay, Ypresian, Eocene. However, I once saw a single similar specimen from same age Moroccan rocks. Dates circa 50 myo. I think it could be a fish tooth from the genus Labrus.
