Ninadiacrodium caudatum

Classification: Acritax_Camb -> Ninadiacrodium -> Ninadiacrodium caudatum
Sister taxa: N. aff caudatum, N. caudatum, N. dumontii, N. sp.,


Citation: Ninadiacrodium caudatum (Vanguestaine 1973) Raevskaya & Servais 2009
Rank: species
Notes & discussion:

Ninadiacrodium caudatum is a distinctive and stratigraphically important taxon. To avoid any potential dilution of the specific concept a possibly closely related form encountered in the Comley samples is treated separately below as N. aff. caudatum. [Potter et al. 2012]
