3-5). These teeth clearly demonstrate that the tooth morphology is retained even at these sizes, and no lateral denticles are present. Number 3 is a heart-shaped I (total length 19 mm); number 4 is a second lower anterior, ii, with the same total length, and number 5, the smallest tooth, corresponds to a third lower anterior, position iii (total length 13 mm). In the same figure, slightly larger teeth are shown (Nos. 6-9). Number 6 is a I; 7, a III; 8, a first lower i; and 9, a second lower ii.

Our data set is not exclusively binary, but the use of ^1 values for binary character sets gives a conservative estimate of the probability of significant structure in the data set. 851596 for the recoded data set with Cetorhinus and Megachasma removed. We conclude that both sets contain phylogenetic information. Sanderson and Donoghue (1989) showed that CIs very directly with the number of taxa. 000213^2 from a large sample of published cladograms. 701. Analyses of both the original and recoded data sets yielded a CI greater than the Clexpected/ ^ ^ ^ within the scatter of Sanderson and Donoghue's data.

Polarity: Minute lateral denticles considered primitive (state 1). States: Absent = 0, minute = 1, moderate = 2. Recoded states: No change in character coding. 9. Lingual protuberance: Lingual root bulge in the upper lateral teeth scored as variable, either well developed (a prominent bump) or almost flat. Outgroup comparison: Moderately developed in the root of Mitsukurina (character state 1). Polarity: Moderate protuberance considered primitive (state 1). States: Weak = 0, moderate = 1, strong = 2.
