Anaptomorphinae

Mammalia - Primates - Omomyidae

Taxonomy
Anaptomorphidae was named by Cope (1883). It is not extant. Its type is Anaptomorphus.

It was synonymized subjectively with Mixodectidae by Hay (1902); it was reranked as the subfamily Anaptomorphinae by Szalay (1976), Bown and Rose (1991), Gingerich (1993), Muldoon and Gunnell (2002) and Hooker (2007).

It was assigned to Quadrumana by Cope (1889); to Paleopithecini by Wortman (1903) and Wortman (1904); to Primates by Simpson (1937) and Simpson (1940); to Tarsiiformes by Robinson (1968); and to Omomyidae by Szalay (1976), Bown and Rose (1991), Gingerich (1993), Muldoon and Gunnell (2002) and Hooker (2007).

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
F. S. Szalay 1976"characterized by the presence of protocone-fold (sometimes referred to in the literature as Nannopithex-fold), and a type of hypocone that is an indistinct elevation on the distal slope of the protocone. ... Along with this type of hypocone construction anaptomorphines are usually also characterized by low and relatively bulbous trigonid cusps and relatively shallow talonids."
