Ampullinidae

Ampullinidae are an extinct taxonomic family of deep-water sea snails, marine gastropod molluscs in the clade Caenogastropoda. [1]

The shells of species in this family resemble those of naticids. Sea snails of this family lived from the Triassic period to the Pliocene age of the Cenozoic.

Taxonomy[edit source | edit]

No subfamilies in this family are recognized in the taxonomy of Bouchet & Rocroi (2005).

Classification[edit source | edit]

The contents and synonymy of Ampullinidae have been treated by the World Register of Marine Species after Lozouet et al. (2001), Kase & Ishikawa (2003) and Bandel (2006). The position in Campaniloidea is based on anatomical data on Globularia fluctuata (Kase, 1990; Healy, pers. comm., sperm morphology), but Ampullinoidea is treated as distinct superfamily by Lozouet et al. (2001) and Bandel (2006). [1]
