Data from: Trunk dental tissue evolved independently from underlying dermal bony plates but is associated to surface bones in living odontode-bearing catfish

Carlos J. Rivera-Rivera & Juan I. Montoya-Burgos
Although oral dental tissue is a vertebrate attribute, trunk dental tissue evolved in several extinct vertebrate lineages but is rare among living species. The question of which processes trigger dental-tissue formation in the trunk remains open, and would shed light on odontogenesis evolution. Extra-oral dental structures (odontodes) in the trunk are associated with underlying dermal bony plates, leading us to ask whether the formation of trunk bony plates is necessary for trunk odontodes to emerge....
