In September 2021, a new species of Jurassic-age Hybodont Shark was discovered from Rajasthan. The researchers have named the new species ‘Strophodusjaisalmerensis’ after the newly discovered crushing teeth in Jaisalmer. The genus Strophodus has been discovered for the first time in India, and it is only the third such record from Asia, with the other two records coming from Japan and Thailand.
Hybodont sharks have been discovered for the first time in the Jurassic rocks of Rajasthan’s Jaisalmer region (aged between 160 and 168 million years).
A team from the Geological Survey of India has reported the teeth of a new species of Jurassic Hybodont Shark for the first time from Jaisalmer, a city in the western Indian state of Rajasthan (GSI).
