If no rank is listed, the taxon is considered an unranked clade in modern classifications. Ranks may be repeated or presented in the wrong order because authors working on different parts of the classification may disagree about how to rank taxa.

E. Correa et al. 2010Winged fruit with a nearly circular wing 3.5 cm wide surrounding a prominent domed central fruit body, 12 mm wide, with a height of 4 mm (measured from the impression; original thickness estimated ~8 mm).
Fruit body with 10 meridional vascular bundles. The wing is slightly entire-margined, without lobes. The veins of the wing apparently radiate in subparallel fashion (some what like wood rays) from the margin of the fruit body, anastomosing, and dichotomizing once up to four times before reaching the margin.
