The teeth in the upper jaw and the palate of adult Andrias davidianus and A. japonicus are pedicellate, bicuspide, arranged in a monostichous pattern, and ankylosed in a pleural condition to the dentigerous bones. We presume that the palate is toothed by two (vomerine) dental laminae and the upper jaw by one continuous dental lamina. Bicuspidity of all teeth, a distinct, probably collagenous, dividing zone and the absence of both a palatinum and a palatinal dental lamina are features generally observed in fully transformed urodeles.
