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.

Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
N. A. Smith 2011Dorsal and ventral edges of the mancalline scar extending
into primary pneumotricipital fossa taper to a point as in Mancalla lucasi, rather than
remaining parallel as in Mancalla californiensis and Mancalla cedrosensis (123:1; Fig. 5);
mancalline scar extending into primary pneumotricipital fossa is an excavated pit as
in Mancalla californiensis rather than raised in relief to the fl oor of the primary pneumotricipital
fossa and the humeral shaft as in Mancalla cedrosensis and Mancalla lucasi
(121:0); humerus shorter than other known Mancalla (Tables 2 and 3).
