Tooth replacement in vertebrates is extremely diverse, and its study in extinct taxa gives insights into the evolution of the different dental renewal modes. Based on µ-CT scans of a left lower jaw of the extinct fish †Scheenstia (Actinopterygii – Lepisosteiformes), we describe in detail a peculiar tooth replacement mode that is, as far as we could trace back in the literature, unique among vertebrates. The formation of the replacement teeth comprises a 180° rotation...
