Two permanent lower second molar teeth (KNM-MB 19841 and KNM-MB 27844) attributed to Victoriapithecus macinnesi were prepared for histological analysis. A further five male and three female canine teeth were replicated with a silicone impression material and perikymata counts subsequently made on epoxy casts over the whole crown surface. Daily enamel cross striations averaged 6 microm apart in both cuspal and lateral enamel of the molars and the total crown formation times were approximately 1… CONTINUE READING
