Gastrodontidae

Gastrodontidae is a family of air-breathing land snails, terrestrial pulmonate gastropod mollusks in the clade Eupulmonata (according to the taxonomy of the Gastropoda by Bouchet & Rocroi, 2005).

This family has no subfamilies (according to the taxonomy of the Gastropoda by Bouchet & Rocroi, 2005).

Distribution[edit]

Distribution of Gastrodontidae include Nearctic, western-Palearctic, eastern-Palearctic, Neotropical and Hawaii.[3]

Anatomy[edit]

Some snail species in this family use love darts made of cartilage.

In this family, the number of haploid chromosomes lies between 26 and 30 (according to the values in this table).[4]
