Mammalia - Ungulata - Camelidae
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. Geraads 2014||A large member of Camelus, upper molars only slightly longer than broad, with rounded styles, P4 much nar- rower than M1, lingual wall of m3 hypoconulid not very oblique, mesial border of the mandibular ramus is strongly inclined back- wards, distal humeral articulation almost perpendicular to the long axis of the bone, and with a cylindrical medial part. Differs from species of Paracamelus in the loss of p3. Differs from mod- ern C. bactrianus and C. dromedarius in its much broader molars, both relative to their length and relative to P4, less acute styles in the upper teeth, less oblique m3 hypoconulid, more obli- que anterior border of mandibular ramus, and more cylindrical and more transverse distal humeral articulation. Differs from the Pleistocene North African C. thomasi in its much broader molars, both relative to their length and relative to P4, and lack of mandibular pachyostosis.|
