Qatrania wingi had a dental formula of 2:1:3:3 on both the upper and lower jaw (Fleagle, 1988). The molars have low crests (Fleagle, 1988). This species had an average body mass of around 300 grams (Fleagle, 1988).

Qatrania wingi was found in Africa, and was discovered in the country of Egypt (Fleagle, 1988). This species occurred during early Oligocene (Fleagle, 1988).

Based upon dental morphology this species was either a frugivore or a gummivore (Fleagle, 1988).
