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.
|J. Anquetin et al. 2017||Craspedochelys jaccardi differs from all other Craspedochelys by having a more rounded carapace with its greatest width at the level of peripheral VII, a higher length/width ratio of the costal bones (4.8 or more, as opposed to around 4.3 for costal IV). In addition, Craspedochelys jaccardi differs from Craspedochelys picteti by being smaller in size (carapace length 420 mm) and by having an evenly rounded anterior carapacial rim, a contact between costal VIII and peripheral XI present, a wider than long pygal bone, and wider than long hyoplastra and differs from Craspedochelys passmorei by having a shallower nuchal notch, epiplastra that reach the lateral margin of the anterior plastral lobe, and a shorter posterior plastral lobe.|
