Diagnosis

F. Bachmayer and R. W. Wilson 1970Larger than Progonomys cathalai by approximately 15 per cent. M1 and M2 three-rooted, but may have broad inner root with sulcus. Perhaps a slightly greater approach to stephanodonty than in P. cathalai (cusps 6 and 9 may be closer together). m1 without, or with only rudimentary anterior cuspule.
