R. Daams and H. de Bruijn 1995M1 and M2 of which the antcrior side of the trigone points obliquely backward. Lingual cusps and lingual ends of the posteroloph fused. In the trigone two small, accessory ridges (centrolophs) are present, of which the anterior one joins the paracone. Lower molars with well-developed mesoconid-entoconid ridge (=mesolophid). The protoconid ridge (=inetalophid) does not reach the metaconid. Paraconid, metaconid and mesolophid (=centrolophid) form a continuous ridge which curves twice at right angles.
