It was reranked as Lachryma (Proterato) by Cernohorsky (1971); it was misspelled as Proerato by Cate (1977), Wilson (1993), Sepkoski (2002) and Héros et al. (2007).
It was assigned to Lachryma by Cernohorsky (1971); to Eratoidae by Cate (1977); to Neotaenioglossa by Sepkoski (2002); and to Eratoinae by Wilson (1993) and Héros et al. (2007).
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.
|W. O. Cernohorsky 1971||Species of Proterato differ from Lachryma s.str. only in the absence of surface sculpture and a slightly deeper and more produced fossula. Species of Proterato are confined to Eocene-Pliocene deposits of Australia and New Zealand.|
