Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
J. van der Made 1989Small bovid with molars that have height/length ratio usually below 0.9. The premolars are long considering their width. The horn pits are nearly straight, have an oval section, are inclined stronly backwards and slightly externally and are at the edge of the orbit. The tips of the horn cores are curved slightly forward. The axis of the frontal zone makes a small angle with the axis of the parietal zone. The skull has wide and short parietals, that curve down distally.
