Lonchidion humblei is a new species from the Dockum Group (Triassic; Upper Carnian) of Texas and is the only freshwater hybodont from the Triassic of the Western Hemisphere for which the dentition is known. This species exhibits a tooth morphology from which other Lonchidion were probably derived with a prominent labial buttress, low crown, smooth sculpture, and lacking accessory cusps.
