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.

Falkenbach 1950||SKULL: Size large (approaching size of Merycochoerus matthewi); nasals greatly retracted to anterior portion of P2; anterior nasal-maxilla con tact above P3 ; zygomatic arch extending posteriorly to a point above the posterior border of the postglenoid process; large and deep lacrimal fossa; small facial vacuity. (See generic description.)
MANDIBLE: Similar to examples of Hypsiops. (See generic description.)
DENTITION: Series longer than any known examples of Hypsiops; smaller than in examples of Merycochoerus. (See generic description.)
