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. Kouchinsky et al. 2009Selindeochrea species characterised by internal moulds that can be twisted through several revolutions, and V-shaped grooves between lobes narrowing distally.

DESCRIPTION. Internal moulds twisted anticlockwise, having three lobes with elongated transverse profiles narrowing distally (Fig. 46A, C, E). The lobes are separated by grooves that are V-shaped transversally (Fig. 46A, C) and become less distinct towards the initial part (Fig. 46B). In larger specimens the grooves are W-shaped in cross-section, with a central ridge carrying a median narrow groove (Fig. 46E). Between the lobes growth lines are arched and produce acute angles pointed towards the aperture (Fig. 46G).
