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.

N. Spjeldnaes 1957Leptaena species with abrupt geniculation with no elevated ridge around the disc. Angle between the fringe and disc about 90°, or slightly less. Ventral muscle impressions broad, short, radially striated and well defined.
A. Williams 1962Sharply geniculate, subrectangular Leptaena with a piano-convex disc up to 9 mm. long and ornamented by variably developed rugae; costeUae of equal thickness and coarse, about 4 per millimetre antero-medianly; ventral muscle-scar large and subcircular; dorsal median ridge fused to secondary shell deposit, anterior to socket plates, to form an anchor-shaped structure subtending the adductor muscle-scars.
