Siphonicytara Busk, 1884

Type species: Siphonicytara serrulata Busk, 1884

The genus Tubitrabecularia Bassler, 1934 has the Tertiary type species Eschara elevata Tenison Woods, 1876. This species has been identified by later workers (eg. MacGillivray 1895) with material belonging to the species listed here as Siphonicytara irregularis Maplestone 1902. The type material of Tenison Woods has not been located. However, there is little in common between the rough drawing of E. elevata and the material used by others. Until the type of E. elevata is located or a neotype nominated, the genus Tubitrabecularia is not recognisable (it is apparently not a synonym of Siphonicytara).

This genus includes the species:
