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.
|H. de Bruijn et al. 2003||Small to large cricetids, dentition with rather bunodont cusps. Mandible transversally inclined with respect to the occlusal surface, diasteme concave with steep posterior border. Maxilla with short foramen incisivum, not – or only slightly – entering between the M1. Lower molars: m3 smaller than m1. Posterior part of m3 generally reduced. Protoconid hind arm in m1 and m3 frequently present, in m1 it may be connected to the metaconid. Anterior metalophulid in m1 frequently present. Posterolophid of m1 often forms a wide curve. In m2 and m3 the metalophulid is generally placed far forward, and the anterosinusid reduced. Upper molars: Lingual border of M1 straight or convex, forming an angle of less than 90º with the posterior border. The prelobe of M1 may be set off from the rest of the molar, but more frequently the lingual border between anterocone and protocone is smooth.|
