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.

P. Y. Parkhaev and Y. Demidenko 2010"Sclerites composed of 2 to 20 clavate radial spines, surrounding vertical or inclined central spine. Radial spines lie in basal plane or form angle with it. Sometimes two or three central spines present."
A. Kouchinsky et al. 2011"Radially symmetrical sclerites, with or without central rays, and with 4–12 lateral rays (after Bengtson et al. 1990, p. 51)."
