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.

A. Beu and M. Taviani 2013A large Austrochlamys species with 13–15 pri- mary radial costae on juvenile specimens, 30–35 apparent primary costae on adults, many subdivided and interca- lated secondary and finer costae filling radial interspaces closely, and obvious coarse commarginal ridges over the entire surface.
