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 2011Mancalla is diff erentiated from Miomancalla on the basis of
the following humeral characteristics: supracoracoidial crest does not broaden proximally (113:2); distal margin of the primary pneumotricipital fossa convex rather than concave (126:0); ventral margin of the ventral tubercle narrow and ventrally expanded (i.e., convex) rather than wide and deeply grooved (134:0); capital groove constricted
rather than wide (137:1). Additional proposed apomorphies which are present in Mancalla
cedrosensis and two additional associated specimens (SDSNH 77966 and LACM
128870) referable to Mancalla but not to species include: ulna shorter than carpometacarpus
(180:1); ulna and radius more dorsoventrally compressed than other alcids;
extension of the dorsal ulnar condyle farther distally to the ventral ulnar condyle than
in other alcids (182:0); pisiform process of carpometacarpus reduced or absent (188:1).
