Why not consider "Smittia" sp for the nipple-like projection in the median tooth of mentum?

I added a 2nd specimen here (I think these are the same). Well I think somthing "...smittia" .. but Smittia is characterized with S1 plumose and not bifid; unfortunately this nipple-like projection in the median mentum tooth appears in Smittia, Parasmittia, Pseudosmittia Confused ...
