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.
|R. Daams and H. De Bruijn 1995||Very largc glirid genus (of similar size as the recent Glis glis or largcr) with concave. very massivc cheek teeth. The dental pattcrn is Microdyromys-likc: the upper molars have a complcte endoloph, to which the anteroloph is connected at the lingual border. Proto-, meta- and posteroloph are more or less parallel to each other and join the endoloph at right angles and at similar distanccs. The anterior centroloph is longer than the posterior one, but it does not reach the endoloph. In the lower cheek teeth there is a tendency to form a continuous endolophid. The crown of the upper molars is lingually higher than labially. (translated from German)|
