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.

Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
R. Wu and Y. Pan 1985An Asian Late Miocene adapid primate, larger than that of either Sivaladapis or Indraloris. The lower fourth premolar is higly molarised and longer than any lower molar of the same individual. A distinct hypoconulid twinned with the entoconid, with a deep notch between them, is found in the lower fourth premolar and the buccal cingulum is weakly developed. The lower molars are short and broad. There is no cingulum on the buccal side, except alittle rest on it's distal end. The cusps are low and round. The madibular body is big and high.
