*Otodus obliquus*; tooth

Herne Bay, [Kent], [England] Thanet Sands, Eocene (Lower), [Thanetian], [Palaeogene] A member of the Family Otodontidae. The different sizes of these two specimens and Day's size-related pricing strategy, does suggest that the attribution of V7709 in the Day Catalogue is on the wrong line of page 21. With the removal of the wooden mounting boards (which invariably bear the pencilled prices noted in the Day Catalogue) precludes confirmation of this hypothesis, so the attribution previously made has been followed.
