Urocoptidae

Urocoptidae is a family of air-breathing land snails, terrestrial pulmonate gastropod mollusks in the superfamily Urocoptoidea.[2]

Taxonomy

2005 taxonomy

The family Urocoptidae was classified in the superfamily Orthalicoidea (according to the taxonomy of the Gastropoda by Bouchet & Rocroi, 2005).[3]

The family Urocoptidae consists of 7 subfamilies (according to the taxonomy of the Gastropoda by Bouchet & Rocroi, 2005):

2008 taxonomy

Uit de Weerd (2008)[2] moved the Urocoptidae to the newly established superfamily Urocoptoidea based on molecular phylogeny research.[2]

The following cladogram based on Bayesian analysis of sequences of 28S ribosomal RNA shows the phylogenic relations within the Urocoptoidea.[2] There are up to 2008 genetically analyzed species of Urocoptidae and one species of Cerionidae marked in khaki color in the cladogram.[2]

2012 taxonomy

Fred G. Thompson established the family Epirobiidae in 2012 for five genera of snails (Epirobia, Propilsbrya, Pectinistemma, Gyrocion, Prionoloplax), that were previously placed within Urocoptidae.[4] Data from molecular phylogeny research as well as morphology supports monophyly of Holospiridae Pilsbry, 1946 and the Eucalodiidae Crosse & Fischer, 1868.[4]
