Lee, Y.-N. (2007) [New theropod teeth from the Juji Island (Hasandong Formation), Daedo-ri, Hadong County, South Gyeongsang Province]. Journal of the Geological Society of Korea, 43 (2): 151-166.
Abstract: Three new theropod teeth were discovered in the Juji Island (Hasandong Formation), Daedo-ri, Hadong County, South Gyeongsang Province in 2002. Although they are isolated teeth, I assume that they are belonging to the same kind of animal because they were found close each other on the same horizon, showing the same dental features. Especially, the crown height of one tooth is 81 mm which is the largest theropod tooth ever found in Korea.
They are most similar to Acrocanthosaurus when plotting on \\\\\\\"theropod standard data set\\\\\\\". These teeth represent a new theropod dinosaur in Korea because they have different morphology from teeth known before. Comparisons to Early Cretaceous theropods in East Asia, they are similar to Prodeinodon (nomen dubium) from China and Mongolia. They also indicate that there were a variety of theropod dinosaurs lived in Korean peninsula including the large \\\\\\\"carnosaurid\\\\\\\" more than 10 m in length.
