|R. H. Tedford et al. 2009||Differs from V. stenognathus in approximately 20%–25% smaller dentition, P3 and p4 anteroposteriorly shorter, and P4 protocone smaller; differs from V. macrotis and V. velox in P3 and p4 anteroposteriorly shorter and taller crowned relative to length, p4 weaker posterior cusplet, and M1 para- cone taller crowned relative to height of metacone. As in living species, the M1 parastyle is very reduced and the prepara- crista is not united with parastyle, and the m1 entoconid has a transverse cristid passing to the base of the hyperconid.|
