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.
|H. de Bruijn et al. 2003||Small to large Oligocene and Lower Miocene cricetids with rather lophodont molars. M1 with large prelobe, straight or concave labial edge, and with long anterior arm of protocone. M2 with double protolophule. m1 mostly with a strong ridge descending from the metaconid, along the border of the tooth, into the mesosinusid, without reaching the entoconid. In the m1 the mesolophid is frequently double, m1 and m2 nearly always without the posterior arm of the hypoconid. Mandible transversely inclined with respect to the occlusal surface, diasteme concave.|
