An isolated, upper lateral tooth of the extinct lamnid shark Cosmopolitodus planus (Agassiz, 1856), is described from middle Miocene marine deposits (possibly the Duho Formation) in Pohang City, South Korea. This is the first confirmed record of this taxon in the Korean Peninsula. The tooth is less than half the size of a large tooth of this species, suggesting that the tooth comes either from an intermediate or posterior position within the upper jaw, or from a young individual.

Origin of the white shark Carcharodon (Lamniformes: Lamnidae) based on recalibration of the Upper Neogene Pisco Formation of Peru

Abstract:  The taxonomic origin of the white shark, Carcharodon, is a highly debated subject. New fossil evidence presented in this study suggests that the genus is derived from the broad‐toothed

First Record of a Platanistoid Cetacean from the Middle Miocene of South Korea

Among the Platanistoidea, allodelphinids and platanistids have extremely long rostra and symphyseal parts of the mandibles, whose lengths may reach more than 4 times the length of the braincase in some species (Barnes and Reynolds, 2009).

Cenozoic Brittle Stars (Ophiuroidea) from the Hagjeon Formation and the Duho Formation, Pohang Basin, Korea

Forty specimens of fossil ophiuroids were collected from two formations of the Cenozoic marine deposits, Duho Formation and Hagjeon Formation, Pohang Basin, Korea, with a gross morphology well preserved in some specimens, but the details such as disk shape and plates which is the most important diagnostic features were not observed.
