Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
D. R. Prothero 1996Small 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.
