Carcharocles angustidens or Angustidens is an extinct ancestor of the Megalodon shark. The Angustidens evolved in the Oligocene disappeared by the early Miocene (approximately 33-22 million years ago). They were preceded by the Auriculatus and were followed by the Chubutensis species in the Megalodon lineage. Angustidens teeth have side cusps that can be large at the base of the crown. These side cusps will be spaced closer to the crown than Auriculatus
