First and foremost, the literally hundreds of volunteers who participated in the field work at the Flat Rocks site between 1993 and 2008 are thanked for their hard work and discoveries. The Committee for Research and Exploration of the National Geographic Society and the Australian Research Council provided much of the funding needed for the fieldwork carried out at the Flat Rocks locality. Permits to carry out the excavations in the Bunurong Marine Park were issued by National Parks Victoria. Useful discusions were had with Edgar Allin, Alexander Averianov, Zofia Kielan-Jaworowska and Guillermo Rougier. Averianov and Rougier completely unbeknownst to one another, each suggested that NMV P229194 might be the upper premolar of Teinolophos. Jin Meng and one anonymous reviewer provided useful comments on the manuscript. Andrew Russos, Wheelers Hill, Victoria, Australia and Atlas Copco, Sjobodavagen, Stockholm, Sweden provided essential facilities and assets. Digimorph scans were provided by Timothy Rowe. Draga Gelt provided critical assistance with the graphics at short notice. Suzanne Hand organized the loan of isolated upper premolars of Obdurodon dicksoni. We acknowledge travel funding provided by the International Synchrotron Access Program managed by the Australian Synchrotron and funded by the Australian Government. We also thank Museum Victoria, Monash University and the Australian Synchrotron for the use of facilities and equipment.
