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. G. Beu 2010||Cabestana is a distinctive genus of Ranellidae, with a shell somewhat resembling those of species of Monoplex, but with a narrow central radular tooth, not the conspicuously wide one of Cymatium and closely related genera, and with a short, smooth, turbiniform protoconch as in many species of Sassia, not the tall, multiwhorled, planktotrophic protoconch of Cymatium. Cabestana seems much more nearly related to Sassia than to Cymatium.|
