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.

L. R. Saul and W. P. Popenoe 1993Rather slender fusiform shells with a spire about half total shell height. Whorls posteriorly constricted to a roughened subsutural collar. Sculpture usually dom- inated by strong collabral transverse ribs; spiral sculpture well developed on basal slope, less frequently on periphery. Aperture notched posteriorly, siphonal canal of moderate length and slightly inclined to left. Inner lip callus thin; columella with a strong plait anterior to one or two weaker folds (SOHL, 1964:205).
