Description
type species of Cretacladoides Feichtinger et al., 2020 p. 824 [26760] by original designation (Art. 68.2 ICZN);

Original diagnose after Feichtinger et al. (2020) p. 826 [26760]: Teeth of Cretacladoides ogiveformis gen. et sp. nov. exhibit a triangular and acutely pointed main cusp, which developed labially a prominent, triangular to ogive-shaped superimposed enameloid area. The teeth always possess three pairs of lateral cusplets, where the middle pair is the highest. All cusp axes are slightly inclined laterally away from the main cusp. The cutting edges are well developed, with the tips being a little bit labially-lingually compressed in profile view and slightly sigmoidal. The general appearance of the teeth is very compact.

Remarks
valid after Feichtinger et al. (2020) p. 826 [26760];
