One of the rare species of the middle Eocene (lower Bartonian - 40 mya) from Tushbair, W. Kazakhstan. This is described as an early Paratodus. The Paratodus benedeni has a more rounded root and sharper side cusps as compared to Parotodus mangyshlakensis. These teeth are quite good sized for this species in the Eocene. These new teeth are the first to come out of the Tushbair site for 5 years.
