Contrary to some recent assertions, there are no persuasive ways for determining the homologies of indriid toothcomb teeth and the resulting dental formulas. Most of the presumably distinctive features of procumbent “canines” are also seen in incisors, and vice versa. Thus, there are at least three plausible dental formulas for indriid deciduous teeth and two for the permanent dentition. All formulas are compatible with the distribution of teeth in fossil strepsirhines. Similar arguments apply… Expand
