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.
|C. M. O. Rasmussen et al. 2012||Shell moderately concave, transverse, subelliptical in outline. Maximum width probably at hinge line. Anterior commissure rectimarginate.Dorsal valve strongly concave,with a high,wide catacline interarea. Chilidiumabsent. Unequally parvicostellate ornamentation with relatively closely spaced accentuated costellae that are intercepted by accentuated costae.
Dorsal interior with large bulbous cardinal process projecting posteriorly from a closed, convex chilidium. Socket ridges wing-like, bending at right angles in the anterior direction and not supported by valve floor, laterally. Dorsal median septum more like an elevated, thick ridge with a pair of side septa extending just anterior of cardinalia as short caluses on platform floor. Anteriorly the septum fuses with valve floor to form a bilobed elevated platform that continues laterally towards the cardinal extremities, extending for at least half of valve area. Muscle impressions faint.
