Tooth of Stegolophodon latidens

Stegolophodon is an extinct genus of stegodontid proboscideans, with two tusks and a trunk. It lived during the Miocene and Pliocene epochs,[1][2][3][4][5] and may have evolved into Stegodon. Fossils have been primarily found in Asia, but some have also been reported in Africa.[6]
