Apatodon Marsh, 1877

Apatodon Marsh, 1877 (Amer. J. Sci., (3) 14, 255. NcZ) "deceptive tooth"
a-PAT-o-don (Gr. apatao "deceive" + Gr. odon "tooth")* (m) named for what Marsh thought was "a portion of a lower jaw" of an animal with a tooth deceptively resembling "in form and superior surface of the crown, that of a typical Suilline [pig]." Georg Baur later reidentified the specimen as part of a weathered dinosaur vertebra--the supposed "teeth" were only a chance pattern in an eroded neural spine. Specimen now lost. [?= Allosaurus Marsh, 1877]
