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 1931||Shell large, biconvex, strengthened with 16 to 20 broad, flat-topped, comparatively low, vertical-sided ribs, with narrower interspaces, each of which usually contains a distinct mid-rib, interspaces on the right valve much narrower than the ribs, containing, as a rule, merely the mid-rib with a narrow groove on each side of it, although on a few specimens there are longitudinal striations on the ribs and interspaces as in migitelensis and crassicardo, especially near the margins of the shell, these striations beuig much fainter and less persistent, only in the interspaces of the left valve are the striations prominent, there being usually one or two auxillary striations on each side of the mid-rib; ears with more numerous radiating riblets than is usual for crassicardo.|
