Unless I've missed something, this'll be the second to make it into print,
with the first being a single tooth that received some kind of mention or
other in: Hammer, W.R. 1996. Evolutionary and biogeographic implications
of an Antarctic Jurassic dinosaur fauna. AAPG Bulletin 80: 1827.
The tip-off is from a very good source. Somewhat less reliably, I think
this is probably one dug up several years ago. In that way, despite being
one specimen, it could appear to be both a second and a third.
No, I meant the third Early Cretaceous trity, after *Xenocretosuchus* and
the over 100 unnamed teeth from Japan.
