Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
J. van der Made 1997Small species of Taucanomo. m3 with small third lobe, generally with one cusp. The length and width of the M3 expressed as percentages of the same values in the M1 have lower values than in T. sansaniense. The species tends to be more bunodont and with a more pronounced central cusp than in T. grandaevum of comparible size.
