Found at Aust Cliff - just wondered if anyone could tell me what it's from please.

Scale is in mm's (wish it was inches 😁)

Thanks,

Hi Chris,

That's a hard one, looks incomplete but you might want to check out this paper which you may find interesting and includes pics of fish teeth for comparison: 

http://www.researchgate.net/publication/326630353_Microvertebrates_from_the_basal_Rhaetian_Bone_Bed_latest_Triassic_at_Aust_Cliff_SW_England

There are other papers on researchgate including ones dealing with microvertebrates from Manor Farm, Hamstead Farm, M4/M5 junction, Stowey Quarry etc etc which also include pics of Rhaetic fish teeth and more.

Good luck

Pete

Thanks Pete. I didn't want to give you and easy one to identify! It's the very pronounced ridges on such a small tooth that got me curious.

The link certainly looks to have some contenders - time for some more research.
