Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
J. D. Archibald and A. Averianov 2012Differs from Aspanlestes and Parazhelestes by upper and lower canine singlerooted; mandibular condyle above alveolar level; p5
paraconid cingulid cusp or absent. Differs from Aspanlestes, Parazhelestes, and Eoungulatum by diastema between upper canine and premolars present; diastema posterior to P1 present; P3 singlerooted.
Differs from Parazhelestes and Eoungulatum by protocone labial shift absent. Differs from Parazhelestes by mandibular symphysis at p3 or more posterior; trigonid angle between 36–49°. Differs from
Eoungulatum by P5 protocone smaller than paracone; P5 metacone swelling; P5 para- and metastylar lobes subequal; upper molar preparastyle present; metacone slightly smaller than paracone; ‘coronoid’ facet absent; masseteric fossa bordered ventrally by welldefined crest connected to condyle; m3 subequal to
larger than m2.
