Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
E. Gheerbrant and H. Astibia 2012Representative of “Zhelestidae” close to Labes (Lainodoninae), but differing from it by its slightly stronger bunodonty, a mesially canted trigonid, a more developed postmetacristid, shorter talonid, larger protoconid (e.g., with respect to trigonid lingual cusps), and the crown base lower below the hypoconid.
