H. de Bruijn et al. 2003Primitive cricetids, with lower-crowned cheek teeth. P4 present in the Irdinmanhan genus, Palasiomys and ‘Pappocricetodon’ antiquus, lost in the later taxa; M1 more or less enlarged, parastyle crescentic, cuspate or a swelling, anterolobe small or absent, preprotocrista extending anterolabially and usually connected with parastyle, protoconule minute when present, generally anterior connection between protocone and paracone, sometimes double connection present; m1 smaller than m2 in size, anteroconid weak or absent; M2-3 and m2-3 anterocone(id) low, precingulum continuous, but less elevated; m2-3 with incipient premetacristid and ectomesolophid developed in the later species; m3 ectolophid curved.
