Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
P. Mein and M. Freudenthal 1971Cricetodontini de taille moyenne; les incisives supérieures sont munies d'un faible sillon longitudinal; les molaires supérieures ont des ectolophes partiels; la M1 est à antérocône bifide; elle a quatre racines ou souvent une trace d'une cinquième, qui prend son origine à la base de la grande racine antérieure; les sont légèrement plus hautes que chez le sous-genre Cricetodon, mais l'hypsodontie n'attient jamais le degré qu'elle peut atteindre chez Ruscinomys et Pseudoruscinomys. La taille est inférieur à celle de Deperetomys et Pseudoruscinomys.
A. van de Weerd 1976Cricetodontinae of medium size, with either incomplete or complete ectolophs. The M1 has four or five roots. The anterocone of the M1 has an anterior groove. The anterolophid of the lower molars may be absent. The molars are slightly to moderately hypsodont. The depth of the groove in the upper incisor is variable.
