Conventional classifications define several intergrades between the main units.
Consequently, the classification of Solonchaks intergrades will be Solonchaks-Calcisols, Solonchaks-Gypsisols, and Solonchaks-Calcisols-Gypsisols.

Aniulus craterus intergrades.-TEXAS: Uvalde Co., Garner State Park, Crystal Cave, 2 [male], 6 March 2004.
Ulrichs believed that "Urnings"--his term for gay men--represented a kind of intermediate sex; they had "female souls trapped in male bodies." Magnus Hirschfeld would carry this idea even further with his category of "sexual intergrades" (sexuelle Zwischenstufen), under which he grouped male and female homosexuals, transvestites, and "pseudo-hermaphrodites." Hirschfeld's sexual intergrades fell between normal men and normal women--physically as well as psychologically.
Hirschfeld seems to have learned from such criticism, since by 1914 his notions of the "third sex" and "sexual intergrades" had pretty much fallen by the wayside.
Despite this, non-smectitic and mixed mineralogy classes are recognised in Vertisols and their intergrades
at the family level in Soil Taxonomy (Anon.
In contrast, a sharp morphological distinction appears in the region of Lassen Peak between the unblotched oregonensis and the blotched platensis; thus, we do not assign any of these populations as intergrades
. It is more difficult to separate platensis from croceater; we have used a combination of geographic and coloration criteria.
However, 2:1-2:1:1 intergrades
were significant components in both the Oku red soils (Okinawa Island) and the Pamagersari red soils (Java Island).
undulatus erythrocheilus in turn clearly intergrades
