viridis by the presence of an orange throat during its breeding season and pronounced molariform
shiranus shiranus (Lowe-McConnell, 1982), and the appearance of Cichlasoma minckleyi as an altricial papilliform morph and a precocial molariform
morph (Liem and Kaufman, 1984).
This study sampled both layers of dentine from a lower molariform
tooth of Paramylodon harlani and from dentine and enamel of animals of known dietary preference.
Some modern chondrichthyans with molariform
or pavement-like dentitions, such as horn sharks (Heterdontiformes), bonnethead sharks (Sphyrna tiburo), some rays (Mylobatidae), and chimeras (Holocephali), are durophageous (Dean, 1906; Smith, 1942; Cappetta, 1987; Wilga and Motta, 2000).

Two of the six measurements (length of molariform

postcanine tooth followed by two empty alveoli posteriorly (NSM012GF014.
It feeds on mollusks and crayfish that are crushed with large molariform
