Abstract
    The tooth morphology of all hexanchid species, including the controversial species Hexanchus nakamurai and H. vitulus, is re-examined and illustrated. Odontologically Hexanchus nakamurai is clearly distinct from H. vitulus. An odontological determination key to all hexanchid species is given. The odontological results presented suggest another intrafamilial ordering of the taxa than by the number of branchial arches, which seem to be less important.
