And we have fresh water occurrences of Hybodus sp,  as well as Lissodus and
Ticodus (spelling?)  in the Arundel Clay (Aptian) of Maryland  too! Athough
the proximity of the depositional basin at that time was very close to the
sea it could mean that te above were anadromus or at least patrolled into
fresher waters.
