Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
D. R. Prothero 1996Medium-sized camel (length M1-3 = 37.5-40 mm). Distinguished from Poebrotherium by its slightly reduced premolars (P2-4/M1-3 ratio is approximately 0.65—see Table 4) and its larger size. Distinguished from Paratylopus primaevus by its slightly smaller size, and its teeth, which are primitively large in relation to skull size.
