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.
|Z. Kielan-Jaworowska and J. H. Hurum 1997 (Djadochtatheria)||A clade of multituberculates with skull length varying between 20 and
70 mm, dental formula 2 0 3-4 2 1 1 0 2 2, unicuspid I2 and double-rooted upper premolars. Djadochtatherians are characterized by the following synapomorphies: large frontals, pointed anteriorly in the middle, deeply inserted between the nasals; U-shaped fronto-parietal suture; a sharp edge between the lateral and palatal walls of premaxilla (rounded in other multituberculates). A large roughly rectangular facial surface of the lacrimal, exposed on the cranial roof, separating the frontal from the maxilla is also characteristic for Djadochtatheria, but this may be a plesiomorphy
