Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
R. Daams and H. De Bruijn 1995Small to medium-sized Dryomyinae with usually 9 transverse ridges and an endoloph in their upper molars. The labial ends of anteroloph and posteroloph are as high as paracone and metacone. The anterior centroloph is connected to the endoloph in all but the earliest species. An endolophid may be present in the lower molars.
