In 1870, paleontologist Edward Drinker Cope described the tooth and believed it to be from a carnivorous dinosaur. This idea is pretty much shared today. Today, the tooth is mostly regarded as a nomen dubium or simply put, an unknown. The sad part of this story is that although the tooth was described and photographed, it was lost. Hopefully in the future more will be discovered, but only time will tell.
