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. López-Arbarello et al. 2010||Fusiform actinopterygians distinguished by the following combination of characters: suborbital bones present; postorbital plate of maxilla very large and trapezoid; more than 10 branchiostegal rays; operculum narrower than suboperculum; anteopercular bones present; height of anterior rays in median fins increasing rapidly posteriorly; small fringing fulcra, thick scales strongly ornamented with ganoin ridges, which are parallel or slightly anastomosing (characters based on own observations and partially Aldinger 1937, p. 254).|
