  • Mode of hypotaxy of a taxon that includes more than two parordinate taxa of just lower rank. In a phylogenetic taxonomic frame, the meaning of this situation is unclear, as two different situations may account for it: 1) these parordinate taxa are the members of a still unresolved polytomy, which subsequent work can possibly resolve; 2) an hypothesis already exists regarding the relationships between the members of the polytomy, but it was not implemented into the ergotaxonomy in order to limit the number of ranks of this taxonomy. (Dubois & Raffaëlli 2009)
