Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
W. A. Clemens 2011Williamson (1996, p. 41) essentially followed Matthew (1937) and summarized the diagnosis of the species as follows: “This species differs from Eoconodon coryphaeus in its smaller size. It differs from Goniacodon in the greater transverse diameters of the molars and the unreduced M3.”
