Bothriembryon

provided by wikipedia EN

Bothriembryon is a genus of tropical air-breathing land snails, terrestrial pulmonate gastropod mollusks in the family Bothriembryontidae.[3]

B. J. Smith (1992)[4] made the last review of the genus summarizing all known data.[5]

Distribution

The land snail genus Bothriembryon is endemic to Australia but forms part of the Gondwanan element in the superfamily Orthalicoidea.[5] Bothriembryon species are mostly patchy in their distribution.[5]

Taxonomy

This genus was classified with the Bulimulidae by Pilsbry (1900),[6] Breure (1979)[7] and by B. J. Smith (1992).[4][5]

It was classified in tribe Bulimulini, in subfamily Bulimulinae within the family Orthalicidae according to the taxonomy of the Gastropoda by Bouchet & Rocroi, 2005.[8]

Breure et al. (2010)[9] moved Bothriembryon to Placostylidae.[9]

Breure & Romero (2012)[3] confirmed previous results from 2010 and they renamed Placostylidae to Bothriembryontidae.[3]
