The third premolar is very large, and agrees with its upper one, excepting the lobule on the inner border.Natural History of the Mammalia of India and Ceylon | Robert A. Sterndale
The lobule should be shapely, not adherent, not too pendulous and free from grooves extending from the scaphoid fossa.
The anti-helix may be unduly prominent or be insignificant; the scaphoid fossa may extend through the lobule or be triple.
The lobule may be adherent and sometimes almost absent, thus producing the jug-handle-shaped, or so-called Morel ear.
