Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
A. van de Weerd 1976A. gudrunae has molars of intermediate size and a t7 in more than 50 percent of the upper M1. Assemblages of A. gudrunae differ from those of Parapodemus gaudryi gaudryi in the greater relative frequency of upper M1 and upper M2 with a t7; those of P. gaudryi gaudryi have a t7 in less than 50 percent of the specimens, those of A. gudrunae in more than 50 percent. A. dominans Kretzoi is much smaller than A. gudrunae and always has a t7 in upper M1 and upper M2. A jeanteti is slightly larger than A. gudrunae and has a t7 in all upper M1 and upper M2. Moreover A. jeanteti differs in the morphology of the t7 and in the reduced antero-central cusp of lower M1.
