Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
P. Pelaez-Campomanes 2001d4 with a distinct anteroconid, and the entolophid generally connected to the hypoconid. Anteroconid of p4 either small or absent. Anteroconid of molars progressively smaller towards m3. Entolophid of m2 normally connected to the hypoconulid, although it may be connected to the hypoconid. Metalophid either complete or interrupted in m1-2. Lower molars sometimes with a well-developed labial anterolophid, although not to the extent as in Heteroxerus. Upper teeth. all teeth normally with distinct anteroconule and hypoconule. Mesostyle usually present and included in a short mesoloph in the M3. Metaconule in general larger than the metacone and either connected to the posteroloph or isolated. Protoconule generally absent in D4, P4 and M1-2. When present this conule is small.
