Teeth of an extinct great white shark, Carcharodon sp, from the Neogene Senhata Formation, Miura Group, Chiba Prefecture, Japan



Teeth of an extinct great white shark, Carcharodon sp, from the Neogene Senhata Formation, Miura Group, Chiba Prefecture, Japan



Tertiary Research 20(1-4): 95-115



Thirty teeth of the great white shark from the latest Miocene to earliest Pliocene Senhata Formation are described. The teeth are characterized by weakly serrated crown margins, and tentatively identified as Carcharodon sp. The biostratigraphic ranges of Carcharodon sp. and Carcharodon carcharias are reviewed. It is concluded that the tooth serrations of C. carcharias were progressively acquired from Carcharodon sp. during the Late Miocene to earliest Pliocene at the latest.
