Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
D. R. Prothero 1996Medium-sized (M1-3 length 36-38 mm) camelid with undifferentiated anterior dentition and no diastemata. The m3 hypoconulid is a narrow crest, rather than a horn. Metapodials are longer than P. wilsoni or Paratylopus labiatus. Slightly larger than P. chadronense, with no posterolingual cusps on P3 and a narrower P4.
