Canudo, J.I., Ruiz-Omanca, J., Aurell, M., Barco, J.L. & Cuenca-Bescos, G. (2006): A megatheropod tooth from the late Tithonian – middle Berriasian (Jurassic-Cretaceous transition) of Galve (Aragón, NE Spain). Neues Jahrbuch für Geologie und Paläontologie, Abhandlungen, 239: 77-99.
Abstract: We herein describe the biggest theropod tooth hitherto found in Spain. The tooth (IPS-G1) comes from the Villar del Arzobispo Formation (Upper Tithonian-Middle Berriasian) in the Galve Sub-basin. The specimen is a nearly complete maxillary tooth with a FABL of 34 mm and DSDI = 1. Considering its geological age and the crown morphology (including the size), it is most likely that the tooth belongs to an allosauroid. This clade of theropods was present in the Late Jurassic of Portugal and the Early Cretaceous (Berriasian and Barremian) of England. The tooth represents the first allosaurid from Spain, and the biggest theropod from the European Berriasian.
