The dorsal fin spine of Edaphodon closely resembles that of the extinct genus Ischyodus Egerton 1843, but differs from the latter genus by displaying a weakly compressed subovate fin spine with a large subovate pulp cavity, and an incomplete trabecular tissue layer confined to the anterior and posterior spine edge.

The goal of endodontic treatment is thorough mechanical and chemical debridement of the entire pulp cavity in addition to the attainment of hermetic seal along the entire root canal system.1,2 Therefore it is essential for the clinician to have adequate knowledge of root canal anatomy and morphologic variations in order to reduce the probability of treatment failure.3
