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.
|H. -K. Yeh 1990||The description for the type suggests that several characters relate to C. baenoides while others approach C. zigongensis. Those characters that differentiate this species from the other two include a very rounded entoplastron and an extremely medially compressed mesoplastron.|
