Although incomplete, the large size and deep buccal bays indicate this tooth probably belongs to the genus Lemmus. Additionally, in the Recent sample available (in both ROM Mammalogy and Palaeobiology), the anteriad curvature of the anterior enamel portion of each buccal bay suggests Lemmus, as this enamel portion is straighter in both Synaptomys species.
