Mammalia - Lipotyphla - Erinaceidae
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.
|M. Freudenthal 1972||Galericine of gigantic proportions, with diastems between the premolars. The frontal part of the skull is much elongated, the skull itself very long in comparison to the body. Deinogalerix koenigswaldi is the type species. Skull length over 20 cm.|
|P. M. Butler 1980||The largest species of the genus: in the holotype P3-M3=45 mm, M1 measures 10.0 x 12.7 mm, and p3-m3 = 53 mm. Face anterior to P3 and symphyseal part of mandible markedly lengthened; teeth between the canines and third premolars widely spaced; angular process enlarged at its distal end due to the deposition of bone on its ventral surface, and projecting laterally, markedly out of plane from the rest of the jaw.|
