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. R. Prothero 1996||Medium-sized camel (M1-3 length = 39-41 mm, P3-M3 length = 64-65 mm), slightly larger than Paratylopus labiatus, but with more robust skull and more reduced premolars. Differs from Gentilicamelus sternbergi in that it is slightly smaller with less reduced premolars and less robust skull. Differs from species of Paralabis and Pseudolabis in having much lower-crowned teeth which are small relative to the size of the skull.|
