Mammalia - Rodentia - Cricetidae
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.
|E. H. Lindsay 1987||Democricetodonts are characterized by m1 having a wide and weakly bilobed anterocone (medial lobe much smaller than labial lobe); upper molars commonly have more than one loph directed and frequently joining the opposing cusp; posterior molars are slightly reduced in size esecially in the lower dentition. In addition, the longitudinal crest (mure) is very persistent and the mesoloph (mesolophid) is commonly present by short in all molars.|
