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.

Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
D. A. Russell 1967"The osteology of Globidens remains very incompletely known. It appears to have descended from a Clidastes-like ancestor, but because of the highly peculiar nature of its spherical teeth and massive jaws it is separated from the Mosasaurini into a distinct tribe."
