Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
R. K. Stucky and L. Krishtalka 1990M 1_3 paraconid unreduced, unlike all other species of Bunophorus (except B. robustus); unlike B. robustus, P4 paraconid vestigial in most specimens; differs from B. macropternus and B. etsagicus in having a gracile, uninflated P4, and from B. macropternus in lacking lingually hyperinflated P4-M3 and a cingulid on M3; distinguished from B. sinclairi by lack of metaconid on P4, no hypocone or pericone on MH, and strong, complete cristid obliqua on M2_3; larger than B. robustus, B. pattersoni, B. macropternus.
