It was recombined as Echimonocolpites ruedae by Van der Hammen and Garcia de Mutis (1966).
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.
|T. Van der Hammen and C. Garcia de Mutis 1966||The holotype (Slide C-1-23, Col. S.G.N., Suesca, Maestrichtian, Zone C) measures 27 μ, is transparent (exine almost colorless), slightly flattened at one side, and shows well-defined echini of ± 1-3 μ long. The colpus is not very well defined. In some specimens of the Paleocene (Slide F-V-47, Col. S.G.N.), the spines are densely placed and they seem to radiate in a very regular manner from a point located in the centre of the grain; for the rest they are identical with the holotype of E. ruedae. Although there is perhaps justification in establishing a variety, for the time being we shall refrain from creating it.|
