Description
Original diagnose after Reinecke et al. (2018) p. 63 [26875]: Odontaspidid species based on medium-sized, isolated teeth, 7- 25 mm high and 9- 19 mm wide. Dental pattern dignathic and probably disjunct monognathic heterodont. Anterior tooth (2"d upper file) robust, with slightly inclined, elongate principal cusp, one pair of high and pointed, triangular cusplets and high, slightly asymmetrical root lobes. Cutting edges of principal cusp and cusplets thin, sharp, and continuous from apex to base and weakly serrate in lower part of principal cusp. Crown faces smooth, lingually much more convex than labially. Upper lateroposterior teeth with distally curved, triangular principal cusp. Cutting edges and crown faces commonly smooth. One pair of rather broad and high, upright or distally curved, triangular cusplets. Root lobes well separated, laterally divergent and rather low, extending only slightly wider than the crown base. Lower lateroposterior teeth with almost upright, elongate cusp and one pair of erect, strong cusplets being narrower than in upper lateroposteriors. Principal cusp and cusplets lingually inclined with distinct labial recurvature of the apex. Basal labial overhang conspicuous. Laterobasally directed root lobes higher and lingual root protuberance stronger than in upper lateroposterior teeth.

Remarks
valid after Reinecke et al. (2018) p. 62 [26875];
