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.
|A. Williams 1962||Trigonal, unequally biconvex Epacroplecia with a short hinge-line less than one-half the maximum width of the shell; adult brachial valves over four-fifths as long as wide and about two-thirds as deep as long and so strongly inflated in a trilobate manner as to produce an auriculate effect in the postero-lateral areas; dorsal fold commonly sharp and arising at about 4 mm. anterior to the umbo; radial ornamentation consisting of fine, equal costellae, between 6 and 8 per millimetre; ventral umbo commonly long, erect, pedicle valve gently convex and strongly geniculate to project dorsally as a median tongue.|
