We describe tooth implantation, replacement, and attachment in a specimen of the procolophonid Scoloparia glyphanodon. Though an earlier description of the specimen made mention of the dentary, splenial, and coronoid, we identify a small sliver of the angular that is also present. We observe two modes of tooth implantation (protothecodonty and acrodonty) and no tooth replacement, though it is likely teeth were added posteriorly over time. Previous interpretations of tooth implantation in procolophonids were conflated with replacement patterns and mode of implantation. Additionally, the combination of dental characters of the specimen suggests Scoloparia glyphanodon had an herbivorous diet.
