Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
R. Daams and H. de Bruijn 1995A glirid of larger size than Pseudodryomys ibericus. Upper molars with subroundcd outline, a low crown and concave occlusal surface. The ridges are thin and well-separated, with the anterior centroloph only, which joins the anteroloph in an arch-shaped ridge. The labial end of the posteroloph ends free. There is no continuous endoloph. (translated from Spanish)
