Zeugrhabdotus elegans


Classification: Mesozoic -> Eiffellithales -> Chiastozygaceae -> Zeugrhabdotus -> Zeugrhabdotus elegans
Sister taxa: Z. acanthus, Z. angelozziae, Z. bicrescenticus, Z. biperforatus, Z. blowii, Z. burolletii, Z. burwellensis, Z. clarus, Z. cooperi, Z. diplogrammus, Z. elegans, Z. embergeri, Z. erectus, Z. fissus, Z. fluxus, Z. howei, Z. kerguelenensis, Z. moulladei, Z. noeliae, Z. petrizzoae, Z. praesigmoides, Z. reticulatus, Z. scutula, Z. sigmoides, Z. simplex, Z. sisyphus, Z. streetiae, Z. trivectis, Z. xenotus, Z. sp.,

Distinguishing features: Typical small to medium Zeugrhabdotus - used as default identification by many workers - a modern name would be Z. howei


Taxonomy:

Citation: Zeugrhabdotus elegans (Gartner, 1968) Burnett in Gale et al., 1996
Rank: Species
Basionym: Zygodiscus elegans Gartner, 1968
Synonyms:
Notes & discussion: Although the name Z. elegans has been widely applied to typical medium-sized Zeugrhahbdotus specimens the type specimens of Gartner (1968) are R. anthophorus and so the name is a junior synonym of R. anthophorus. An alternative name for the morphotype is Z. howei Bown 2000 in Kennedy et al., 2000
