For the teeth: a maximum height of 2 mm, a rounded to rhomboid base, median cusps between one-half and two-thirds the size of the lateral ones, three to five vertical cristae on the labial side and one or none vertical crista on the lingual side of the cusps, few irregular bifurcation patterns, rounded cross-section of the cusps that becomes polygonal toward the apex, angle of 110–130° between the crown and the base in mesial or distal view, rounded to oval coronal button always with a lingual shaft; up to eight oral nutrient foramina and up to 11 basal nutrient foramina and median cusps not labially displaced. For the dorsal spine: dorso-ventrally compressed with lateral hook-shaped denticles, wide proximal ventral groove that almost reaches the apex, numerous fine proximal longitudinal striations and a width/length ratio of 1/13.
