Anomotodon is an extinct genus of shark related to the extant goblin shark (Mitsukurina owstoni). The distribution of Anomotodon fossils is worldwide, in formations indicating that members of the genus lived from the Early Cretaceous epoch through the Eocene epoch, and perhaps through the Oligocene as well.[1] Described species include A. novus, A. plicatus, A. principalis, and A. multidenticula.[2]
