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.
|M. J. Smith and M. Plane 1985 (Montypythonoides)||Maxilla with a prominent bulge on the labial surface about half way along its length; maxillary teeth curved near base, a weakly developed cutting ridge on labial side of tooth, no cutting ridge on lingual side of tooth.|
|J. D. Scanlon 2001||(refers to characters diagnostic of Morelia or more inclusive clades of Pythoninae, and which can be evaluated in the material described in this work): two teeth on each ramus of premaxilla; anterior palatine teeth longer (or at least, thicker and more erect) than posterior ones; posterior margin of palatine choanal process deeply concave; anterior margin of premaxilla concave; ventral openings of premaxillary channels posterior to alveoli; lateral bulge present on maxilla.|
