Quick Reference

A genus of early opossums, marsupials with long, prehensile tails, several species of which are known from the Milk River Formation (Late Cretaceous) of Alberta. Their teeth were sharply cusped and somewhat primitive in form. Opossums are arboreal in habit and are thought to represent the ideal stem stock from which evolved the whole marsupial group.
