Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
R. Daams and H. De Bruijn 1995Crowns of chcek teeth concave. with low main external cusps; the general arrangement in pattern evidently near Eliomys, but the ridges in most indistinct, and a general tendency towards simplification. The premolars are usually only moderately reduced; but in the type species are strongly reduced. (from Ellerman (1941), dental characteristics only)
