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.
|J. B. Knight 1930||Hemizygae with strong transverse costae that are confined to the
sides of the volution, and with fine revolving lirae on the sides and base. The columellar section shows a slightly arcuate columella, a sub-circular opening and a relatively thin outer wall with no localized thickening (Fig. 3, F). The pseudozygopleuroid nucleus has been observed in numerous specimens.
