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.
|D. R. Prothero 1996||Small to medium-sized camels (M1-3 length = 28-37 mm), with anterior dentition becoming differentiated and developing diastemata. Relatively low- crowned molars with strong styles. Distinguished from Poebrodon by: larger size; greater hypsodonty; M2 wider posteriorly; lingual hypoconulid lobe of M3 reduced; lingual surface of metaconid and entoconid more flattened.|
