G. V. R. Prasad and B. K. Manhas 2002Dyskritodon indicus n. sp. differs from the type species D. amazighi Sigogneau-Russell, 1995 in its smaller size (length of lower molar = 1.24 mm, maximum width = 0.46 mm), in having cusp b hardly lingual to a-c line; almost equally developed cusps e and f enclosing a relatively broader anterior notch.
