Scientists have long thought that Blues and other baleen whales, which belong to a suborder called Mysticetes, evolved millions of years ago from ancestral toothed whales, but they have lacked detailed fossil evidence to chronicle the transition from teeth to baleen.
denticrenatus represents a "missing link" that fits somewhere between ancient toothed whales and the first known fossils of the toothless Mysticetes, says Mitchell, who suggests filter feeding in whales first developed in forms with notched teeth.
