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.
|D. R. Prothero and M. R. Liter 2008||Differs from Cranioceras in having a shorter occipi- tal horn, which is transversely flattened and anteriorly curved. Both the occipital and supraorbital horns are much longer than those of Bouromeryx. The premolars are larger than those in Cranioceras, but the anterior fossette on p4 tends to be open. Molars more brachyodont, usually with the Palaeomeryx fold (modified from Janis and Manning, 1998, p. 485).|
