coryphodon is thus, as might be expected in a primal placental mammal, a creature of somewhat generalised type.
The scapula seems to have the same peculiar leaf-like form that it has in the later coryphodon.
coryphodon, sometimes as large as an ox, is a typical representative.
In coryphodon the skull is of a more normal character, being without the conspicuous protuberances.
For the structure of this genus and of coryphodon, see Osborn, Bull.
The scapula has not the peculiar acuminate form that exists in coryphodon, but is triangular and broad above.
