Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
C. A. Sidor and J. A. Hopson 2018Cricodon species with maximum length of upper postcanine tooth row about 30 mm and with seven to eight gomphodont postcanines. In the lower gomphodont postcanines, the posterior cingulum curves anterolabially and rises to join the descending posterior ridge of the external cusp to close off the labial end of the posterior basin. Incisors and canines finely serrated.
