Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
R. Daams and H. De Bruijn 1995Cheek teeth simpler than in Eliomys, more flat; the outer side of upper series with five low cusps, the inner side with four. M1 and
M2 with seven transverse ridges of which four are well developed, the three alternating between them weaker. P4 considerably smaller than the other teeth, and with its elements reduced. Lower teeth like
the upper series in general arrangement. (from Ellerman, 1941, only dental characteristics from a general diagnosis)
