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.
|L. Chornogubsky et al. 2009||Differs from A. mesetaense n. sp. in the following features: smaller size; the anteriormost talonid cusp of the m1 is divided by a deep, and buccolingually oriented groove; labially, the m1 has up to three labial grooves that run vertically, from almost the crown base up to the occlusal surface; in the m2, the central, labial cusp is divided by a deep groove; the lingual cusps are more bulbous (i.e. they are not so buccolingually compressed as in A. mesetaense); p3 is narrower and with a rounded apex; P2 is larger and extremely long (not known in A. mesetaense); P3 is small, with its crown proportionally higher than that of any other known polydolopid (with
L/W ratio almost 1); M1 has at least five lingual cusps; labially, it has two rows of cusps, except at the anterior end, where there is a large, single cusp (also known in Polydolops serra). In M1, the labial-most row of accessory cusps is straighter.
