Classification: ntax_mesozoic -> Eiffellithales -> Rhagodiscaceae -> Rhagodiscus -> Rhagodiscus angustus
Sister taxa: R. achlyostaurion, R. amplus, R. angustus, R. asper, R. cepekii, R. dekaenelii, R. infinitus, R. pseudoangustus, R. splendens ⟩⟨ R. adinfinitus, R. gallagheri, R. indistinctus, R. pancostii, R. plebeius, R. robustus, R. sageri, R. sicutclipeus ⟩⟨ R. eboracensis, R. hamptonii, R. reniformis, R. sp.

Distinguishing features:
Parent taxon (Rhagodiscus): Loxolith coccoliths with low rim and central-area filled by a granular plate which may be perforate and/or spine-bearing. In xpl the rim is unicyclic moderately bright, the central area is granular, lacking a clear extinction cross.
This taxon: Elongate, narrow Rhagodiscus with parallel or slightly concave sides and a spine/spine base that spans the central area.
