If no rank is listed, the taxon is considered an unranked clade in modern classifications. Ranks may be repeated or presented in the wrong order because authors working on different parts of the classification may disagree about how to rank taxa.
|R. Daams and H. De Bruijn 1995||P4 very small indeed. M1 conspicuously larger than M2, with five well-developcd ridges, the depressions between them very broad; the ridges oblique, the tooth lengthened: M2 with seven transverse ridges, the depressions between them narrow; M3 like M2 but smaller, with ridges less developed. P4 usually with two ridges.
In the lower cheekteeth thcrc are six ridges extending across each tooth cxcept the much reduced premolar; the lower first molar is less enlarged than the upper first molar, and its ridges less oblique. (from Ellerman (1941) dental characteristics only)
