Data on the maximum body size of terebratulide genera collected from figured specimens in the Treatise on Invertebrate Paleontology (Kaesler 2000). Linear measurements of shell width and length were gathered, as well as shell height wherever possible. For genera comprising two or more species, genus body size was calculated as the geometric mean of the holotype specimen for each species. If the holotype was not figured for a species, the paratype, neotype, or best-resolution illustration was used, in that order. Length: shell length (in mm) - beak to commissure; Width: shell width (in mm) - parallel to hinge; Height: shell height (in mm) - perpendicular to the other two axes; Area: product of shell length and width, in log10 mm^2; Volume: product of shell length, width, and height, in log10 mm^3; Figure: figure number of the measured illustration in the Treatise on Invertebrate Paleontology; Figure_part: figure part in the Treatise (required to get the exact specimen measured); Founder: this is the authority for the species as reported in the Treatise; Year: this is the year in which the measured species was described.
