Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
D. R. Prothero 1996Medium to large camels (length of Ml-3 = 47-59 mm) with a slight flexure of the P4 lingual selene. Like all stenomylines, Pseudolabis has a deeply depressed maxillary fossa, a posteriorly elongated premaxilla, and relatively high-crowned teeth. It is further distinguished from Miotylopus in having a slightly shorter rostrum and less reduced premolars. Pseudolabis can be distinguished from all non- stenomyline camels by its weak mesostyles, deep maxillary fossa, and posteriorly extended premaxilla.
