Mammalia - Perissodactyla
It was recombined as Cymbalophus cuniculus by Hooker (1980) and Froehlich (2002).
If no rank is listed, the taxon is considered an unranked clade in modern classifications. Ranks may be repeated or presented in the wrong order because authors working on different parts of the classification may disagree about how to rank taxa.
|D. J. Froehlich 2002||This taxon has no identified unambiguous autapomorphies but it can be diagnosed by the characters it shares with Systemodon. The synapomorphies include the following characters: upper molar parastyle small (Character 38, 2 to 1), M3 smaller than M2, M3 larger than M2 (Character 67, 2 to 1), P4 entoconid small and variable (Character 75, 2 to 1), and M3 hypoconulid connection forming a triple junction with the prehypoconulid crista (Character 105, 0 to 1). The last of these characters is only found in these two taxa and strongly supports their monophyly. Cymbalophus can be distinguished from Systemodon only on size and geography.|
