(from chondrichthyes fandom):
“Palaeocarcharodon, also known as the pygmy white shark, is a genus of sharks in the family Cretoxyrhinidae. Palaeocarcharodon orientalis is the only species of this genus. These sharks lived in the Paleocene, from 61.7 to 55.8 Ma. Since the fossil record of Palaeocarcharodon only relies on teeth in many sizes, much is unknown about the size and appearance of these sharks, though it is likely that they may have resembled a mako or great white. Some paleontologists consider the Palaeocarcharodon as the predecessor of the white shark ( great white-Carcharodon ) and the great Carcharodon Megalodon.
Teeth of Palaeocarcharodon are triangular, labio-lingually compressed, with quite irregular serrations and serrate lateral cusplets. They can reach a size of about 3–6 centimetres (1.2–2.4 in).”
