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.

U. S. Grant and H. R. Gale 1931This is a lenticular shell with rather regularly disposed, fine, sharp, concentric riblets, and without radial sculpture. The posterior radial sulcus or plication, so pronounced on L. jamaicensis, is not well developed, and the anterior one is even less well developed or
entirely obsolete. The cardinal teeth are stronger and the lateral teeth much weaker than
in jamaicensis.
