Picking through a lump of slipped clay a few weeks ago fortuitously revealved this little tooth. Its a Notorynchus possibly aptiensis but only seen a few pictures of similar ones so not 100% on that.It is about 7.5mm across.

Phileas, that is superb, I agree with your id. It's quite a rare one too.

If you don't look, you won't find.

Thanks. It was a pure chance encounter as I had a good look through the rest of the lump and no sign of anything else. Teeth this small anf flat probably float away if they are washed out by the sea!

Lovely clear picture, nice find, it does make you think about the rest of their teeth where they are etc..

No probs. It's certainly good for most microfossils and won't break the bank. I guess if you have a really good slr camera with a big zoom you can get the same quality as this for similar sized things.

I only have a 6mp camera with macro focus, which is fine for fossils over say 1/2 an inch but i reckon one of those microscopes would be excellent for the smaller bits and pieces. You certainly seem to get good results with one!
Thanks
