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.
|E. A. Glover and J. D. Taylor 2007||Shells robust, medium to large, discoidal, flat to moderately infl ated. Sculpture of numerous fine to broad low radial ribs crossed by fi ne commarginal lamellae, sometimes producing nodules at intersection with radial ribs. Lunule short, triangular to narrowly
ovate, deep, strongly asymmetric, projecting from RV. Ligament large, set in deep resilifer. RV with two cardinal teeth, and a single, large anterior lateral tooth set close to cardinal teeth, posterior lateral teeth absent or indistinct. LV with 2 cardinals, anterior lateral 1 or 2, close to cardinal. Posterior lateral tiny or absent. Anterior adductor scar, long, detached from pallial line for about 2/3 of length.
