Costellariidae

provided by wikipedia EN

Costellariidae sometimes called the "ribbed miters" is a taxonomic family of minute to medium-sized predatory sea snails, marine gastropod mollusks.[2] This family of snails is also sometimes referred to as Vexillum miters. The main family of miter shells however is Mitridae, a closely related group.

The monophyly of this family has been confirmed. [3]

Taxonomy

This family was previously sometimes known as Vexillidae.

Latiromitra (from family Ptychatractidae) has been found to be closely related to Costellariidae in the molecular phylogeny analysis by Fedosov & Kantor (2010).[1]

Genera within the family Costellariidae include:

synonyms:

  • Pusiolina Cossmann, 1921 is a synonym of Microvoluta[5]
  • Turricula H. Adams & A. Adams, 1853 (not to be confounded with Turricula Schumacher, 1817) : synonym of Vexillum Röding, 1798
