We present new nodosaurid teeth from the Valanginian of Bexhill,
Sussex and the Barremian of the Isle of Wight, the first from the
Lower Cretaceous of the UK. Teeth found during the mid-1800s from the
Valanginian and ascribed to the nodosaurid Hylaeosaurus are probably
from sauropod dinosaurs. The Isle of Wight tooth could possibly be
referred to Polacanthus foxii, the teeth of which are unknown. These
new English nodosaurid teeth are similar to those of North American
and European Jurassic to Late Cretaceous nodosaurids, especially the
American Gastonia, Texasetes, Mymoorapelta, Gargoyleosaurus and the
European Hungarosaurus.
