The researchers also cited the existence of lobate flow deposits on the Martian dichotomy boundary, which separates the planet's southern highlands from the northern plains, as evidence for a tsunami that pushed waves of water toward an ancient shoreline in the southern hemisphere.
Lobate scarps are cliffs caused by thrust faults that have broken the surface and reach up to nearly 2 miles high.
The male terminalia are characteristic; the supra-anal plate is triangular, wide and lobate, bearing 2 or more small black processes on its anterior surface; the cerci are laterally flattened, bilobate at the tip, the upper fork forming a thin vertical fin, the lower incurved and thickened, often with a subcylindrical form, sometimes in contrast forming a sharp hook; the apex of the subgenital plate is divided, forming two small triangular lobes.

Pyrgotidae Schiner, 1868 are medium to large-sized (4-18 mm) acalyptrate flies, which usually can be recognized by a rather slender (often wasp-like) body, pictured or hyaline wings with short lobate cell bcu, oblique face, genal groove prolongated postero-dorsally to the middle of occiput height, and stiletto-like aculeus that is much shorter than the oviscape.
The species became known in Florida by the vernacular name lobate lac scale in reference to its taxonomic position in the lac scale family, and to the presence in the female test with 4 prominent lobes, a conspicuous character that is found in some other species of Paratachardina, but distinguishes this species from other scale insects commonly encountered in Florida.

For example, abundant gelatinous organisms, such as the scyphomedusa (Chrysaors quinquecirra) and the lobate ctenophore (Mnemiopsis leidyi), can be important predators on early-stage anchovy and competitors with juveniles and adults (Purcell et al., 1994), but their potential role with respect to bay anchovy recruitment could not be defined in our study.
