Re: New Papers on 34th Street
There's a docodont mammal in that lot. Thanks, Jerry.
Me no understand, but it's early in the morning:
<<Hu, Y.-M., Meng, J., and Clark, J.M. 2007. A new Late Jurassic docodont
(Mammalia) from northeastern Xinjiang, China. Vertebrata PalAsiatica
...The new mammal is typical of docodonts in having a cusp b in front of
cusp a, a cusp c distolingual to cusp a and a cusp g mesiolingual to cusp a
on lower molariforms...>>
Good, so cusps b and c are where they should be, relative to cusp a,
<<... Differing from other docodonts, it has no cusp a or crest b-a
developed on lower molariforms.>>
... "it has no cusp a"!?!? Fortunately, cusp a returns in the next
sentence. What on Earth is that just cited sentence meant to mean?
