TABLE 1. Dental measurements of Harpagolestes cf. uintensis (UOMNH F-36924) compared to other Harpagolestes specimens. Measurements of the other Harpagolestes specimens are taken from the literature. In some cases, these measurements were reported in millimeters rather than tenths of millimeters. All alveolar measurements are at the bottom of the table.
