Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
D. R. Prothero 2008Smaller species of late Arikareean-early Hemingfordian blastomerycines with unreduced premolar row (70% or more of molar row length). Differs from all other blastomerycines except Machaeromeryx in its smaller size, but it is significantly larger than Machaeromeryx.
