Re: Ichthyovenator, new spinosaurid from Early Cretaceous of Laos
A theropod tooth referred by Hu (1964) to _Chilantaisaurus_because it
was associated with the holotype is recurved, serrated and
transversely compressed - atypical of spinosaurids. So either this
tooth does not belong to _Chilantaisaurus_ (which Benson & Xu, 2008,
rate as a good possibility), or _Chilantaisaurus_ had teeth unlike
those of (other) spinosaurids.
Is it a shed tooth, or is the root still there?
