Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
L. W. van den Hoek Ostende 1989Moderate to large sized mole. The p1 is much smaller than the p4, but larger than the subequal p2-p3. The p1-p3 bear a single blunt cusp. Lower molars with bulbous cusps; the oblique cristid ends against the labial side of the metaconid, the entocristid is -very- strongly developed.
The protocone of the P4 is strongly reduced. Upper molars with clearly divided mesostyles. The protoconule is strongly reduced, the hypocone is distinct.
