Mammalia - Perissodactyla - Equidae
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.
|D. J. Froehlich 2002||Xenicohippus osborni has all of the synapomorphies of the derived Xenicohippus clade: P2 large and relatively blade-like (Character 68, 0 to 1), P3 > 20% smaller than M1 linear dimensions (Character 71, 0 to 1), P4 entoconid always present (Character 75, 1 to 2), and lower molar paracristid a 30° to long axis of tooth (Character 87, 1 to 2), but lacks any autapomorphies in this analysis. It can be distinguished from Xenicohippus grangeri by the relative size and morphology of the anterior premolars, specifically: P2 without postero-basal cusp, P3 relatively larger than in X. grangeri with pronounced metaconid, P4 relatively larger than in X. grangeri.|
