Zeugrhabdotus elegans


Classification: ntax_mesozoic -> hidden -> deleted -> Zeugrhabdotus elegans
Sister taxa: << < P. triassica subsp. punctata, P. triassica subsp. triassica, P. charlotteii, P. fistulatus, S. pseudobiskayae, S. gephyrion, S. acutiferrus, S. laffittei, Thoracosphaera, T. wombatensis, Z. sisyphus, W. communis, L. primigenius, C. crucifer, T. senarius, Z. elegans, S. cotortuosus, N. funiculus group, L. imprimus, S. humilis

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:
Taxonomic 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
