Evolution and Systematics
Anatomidae was raised to the rank of family in a study by Geiger & Jansen (2004). Bouchet & Rocroi placed it in the superfamily Scissurelloidea. This was disputed in 2008 by Yasunori Kano  who does not believe that Anatomidae should be separated from Scissurellidae and actually states that it is the subfamily Anatominae. He suggests that this result was induced by contamination or mislabelling. 
This family has no subfamilies.
Genera within the family Anatomidae include:
- Anatoma Woodward, 1859
- Thieleella Bandel, 1998
- Sasakiconcha Geiger, 2006
