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.
|H. F. Osborn 1918||(Merriam, 1914, 1915) (1) Type belonging to an animal of medium size, approaching in dimensions
Pliohippua aupremua. (2) Dilfers from P . aupremua in the heavier mesostyle, relative narrowness (in transverse diameter) of the crown even toward the base, narrower fossettes, much less plicated enamel walls of fossettes, much smaller, more nearly circular protocone. (3) Resembles P. 'jairbankai of the Ricardo approximately in size, in simplicity of fossettes, in the very small, round protocone, and weak connection of the protoloph and metaloph; (4) differs from P. fairbankai in the narrower and less curved crown of the molar teeth, the being apparently a normal char- acter of worn teeth; (5) possibly separated only by subspecific characters from P. fairbankai. (6) A larger"il.nd more progressive stage than the Pliohippus or Protohippus species of the Jacalitos.
