Abstract.

Described here is a sauropod tooth from the Early Cretaceous of South Korea, similar to Brachiosaurus. The crown of the tooth is beveled off lingually so that when worn it presents a chisel-like edge. This find confirms the presence of a brachiosaurid in East Asia during the Early Cretaceous.
