9) in head; dentition of holotype typical of the genus with three pairs of canine teeth anteriorly at side of upper jaw, the first forward-projecting, the next two strongly recurved and outcurved, the third much the longest; an irregular row of very small conical teeth medial to upper canines; side of upper jaw with about 18-20 small conical teeth; lower jaw with a single pair of forward-projecting canines and a row of very small conical teeth in the symphyseal gap; side of lower jaw with a row of about 20 small conical teeth, decreasing in size posteriorly.
An x-ray revealed that the right mandible had a "moth-eaten" appearance that extended from the subcondylar area on the right to the symphyseal area on the left; obliteration of the right inferior alveolar canal was also evident (figure 1).
The presence of the long, bulbous snout, a symphyseal tooth row, two rows of large upper anterior teeth on each side of the symphysis, the unequal size of first and second dorsal fins, and the first dorsal fin being located closer to the pectoral bases than the pelvic bases provided further confirmation that the shark belonged to the genus Odontaspis, as opposed to Carcharias (Compagno, 1984).
