Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
Z. Qiu and G. Storch 2000Differs from the single previously known species of the genus, S. kretzoii, in having a conspicuously bulbous P4 (paracone, parastyle and protocone inflated; paracone very wide, U-shaped and markedly protruding from the labial outline; occlusal outline of the tooth hardly tapering anteriorly); a straight posterior margin and a very shallow posterlingual basin of P4; a very high and crest-like endoloph on M1-2 connecting postprotocrista and hypoconal cingulum; hardly any posterior emargination, a shallow posteriolingual basin, and a more bulbous parastyle of M1; a smaller and less excavated hypoconal flange of M2; a distinctly more inflated protoconid of m1; and more lingually bent protoconid and hypoconid on m2. Dental size as in S. kretzoii.
