Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
J. G. M. Thewissen and S. Bajpai 2009Diagnosis.—Dugongine with upper incisors which are greatly
flattened medio−laterally, and multi−rooted upper premolars,
unlike most dugongines. Domningia differs from Corysto−
siren and Rytiodus in having incisors that are more or less flat
(not oval) on cross−section and in having a long nasal process
of the premaxilla. In Domningia, the exoccipitals meet in the
median plane dorsal to the foramen magnum, unlike Dioplo−
therium and Bharatisiren.
