Bandfish

provided by wikipedia EN

Bandfishes are a family, Cepolidae, of perciform marine fishes. The family includes about 21 species. They are native to the East Atlantic and Indo-Pacific, including the Mediterranean and off Southern Australia and New Zealand. They dig burrows in sandy or muddy seabed and eat zooplankton.[1] As suggested by the name, bandfishes are elongated in shape, up to 80 cm (31 in) long (most species only reach around half that length), and typically reddish, pinkish or yellowish in color. They are mainly found from 80 to 500 m (260 to 1,640 ft), though most species in the genera Acanthocepola and Cepola occur at shallower depths.

The oldest recipe by a named author involves the preparation of a bandfish. The original recipe book, by Mithaecus, is now lost, but the recipe itself survives thanks to being quoted in the Deipnosophistae.[2][3]

Cepolidae (gastropods)

provided by wikipedia EN

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

Distribution

Distribution of Cepolidae include Nearctic and Caribbean.[2]

Anatomy

This family is defined by the absence of the diverticulum. Snails in this family have one dart apparatus, and one mucous gland on top of the dart sac. The sheath of the dart apparatus has two glands.

Taxonomy

This family is placed within the clade Stylommatophora within the clade Eupulmonata (according to the taxonomy of the Gastropoda by Bouchet & Rocroi, 2005).[3] In many textbooks and on many websites however this family is listed as the subfamily Cepolinae within the family Helminthoglyptidae.

The name Cepolidae Ihering, 1909 is a homonym for the family Cepolidae Rafinesque, 1815 (based on Cepola Linnaeus, 1766) a family of bandfishes in the superfamily Cepoloidea within the order Perciformes.
