The present classification of this genus into three subgenera, 95 species and 142 varieties is complex and confused. This classification is best ignored temporarily, as it is based on subtle morphological varieties among small samples. It is also assumed that many smaller species remain to be discovered.
Species within the genus Tropidophora include:
- Tropidophora articulata (Gray, 1834)
- † Tropidophora bewsheri
- † Tropidophora bipartita
- Tropidophora carinata Born, 1780 - possibly extinct
- Tropidophora deburghiae Reeve, 1861
- Tropidophora deflorata (Morelet, 1876)
- † Tropidophora desmazuresi Crosse, 1873
- Tropidophora fimbriata (Lamarck, 1822)
- Tropidophora michaudi Grateloup, 1840 - possibly extinct
- Tropidophora perinetensis Fischer-Piette & Bedoucha, 1965
- Tropidophora semidecussata
- † Tropidophora semilineata
- Tropidophora tricarinata
- Tropidophora zanguebarica (Petit, 1850)
