Mammalia - Soricidae
If no rank is listed, the taxon is considered an unranked clade in modern classifications. Ranks may be repeated or presented in the wrong order because authors working on different parts of the classification may disagree about how to rank taxa.
|Z. Qiu and G. Storch 2000||Differs 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.|
