The anterior lobe of the incisor small, connected with the tip; the second lobe large, short and high; the third lobe small, separated from the cingulum. i2 small, compressed, squeezed in between the posterior edge of i1 and the anterior edge of p4. p4 with two rudimentary cusps. Cingula of the molars strong, equal in thickness. The entoconids separated. m3 small, lacking the entoconid, bearing a low talonid. Mental foramen in the depression between the proto- and hypoconid of m1. The coronoid process low, curved outwards and to the back. Masseter crest provided with a spine. The angular process thick.
