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.

Y. Wang et al. 2003Two concentric spherical lattice shells with six three-bladed main spines. Two main spines are robust but one of them is extremely large and massive. Four other main spines are smaller and about equal in size. No by-spines or by-spines not developed.
