Ostracoda - Podocopida - Trachyleberididae
Alexander (1933) originally misidentified the type species as Cythere sphenoides(/i). In this publication (Puckett, 2002), the correct identification of Alexander's type material from the Brownstown Formation (early Campanian) of northeast Texas is recognized as Brachycythere crenulata Crane 1965.

It was assigned to Cytheridae by Alexander (1933) and Alexander (1934); to Podocopida by Sepkoski (2002); and to Trachyleberididae by Puckett (2002).
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.
