The Infraorder Discopoda is a member of the Suborder Neotaenioglossa. Here is the complete "parentage" of Discopoda:
- Domain: Eukaryota
Whittaker & Margulis,1978 - eukaryotes
- Kingdom: Animalia
Linnaeus, 1758 - animals
- Subkingdom: Bilateria (Hatschek, 1888) Cavalier-Smith, 1983 - bilaterians
- Kingdom: Animalia Linnaeus, 1758 - animals
The Infraorder Discopoda is further organized into finer groupings including:
- Family (18): Adeorbidae · Barleeidae · Batillariidae · Cassidae · Cerithiidae · Diastomatidae · Fossaridae · Lamellariidae · Litiopidae · Modulidae · Obtortionidae · Planaxidae · Pleuroceridae · Potamididae · Siliquariidae · Trochaclididae · Turritellidae · Vitrinellidae
Batillariidae, common name batillariids or mudcreepers, are a family of marine, cerithioidean gastropod molluscs in the clade Sorbeoconcha. They consist of 14 living species, classified in six to eight genera. [more]
Cassidae is a taxonomic family of medium-sized, large and sometimes very large sea snails commonly called helmet snails or bonnet snails. These are marine gastropod mollusks in the superfamily Tonnoidea and the clade Littorinimorpha. [more]
Cerithiidae, common name the cerithiids or ceriths, is a large family of medium-sized marine gastropods in the clade Sorbeoconcha. [more]
Lamellariinae is a subfamily of small slug-like sea snails, marine gastropod molluscs belonging to the family Velutinidae, in the clade Littorinimorpha. [more]
Litiopidae, common name litiopids, is a family of small sea snails, marine gastropod molluscs in the clade Sorbeoconcha. [more]
Modulidae, common name modulids, is a family of small sea snails, marine gastropod molluscs in the superfamily Cerithioidea. [more]
Obtortionidae is a family of sea snails, marine gastropod molluscs in the superfamily Cerithioidea, that is within the clade or in clade Sorbeoconcha. [more]
Planaxidae, common name planaxids, are a taxonomic family of small and minute sea snails, pantropical marine gastropod molluscs in the clade Sorbeoconcha. [more]
Pleuroceridae, common name pleurocerids, is a family of small to medium-sized freshwater snails, aquatic gilled gastropod mollusks in the superfamily Cerithioidea.These snails have an operculum and typically a robust high-spired shell. [more]
Potamididae, common name potamidids (also horn snails or mudwhelks), are a family of small to large brackish water snails living in mangroves, gastropod molluscs of the clade Sorbeoconcha. Traditionally, potamidids and batillariids have been confused with each other for having similar shells and living in a similar environment. For many fossil taxa the family assignment to either of these two families is still unresolved or controversial. [more]
Siliquariidae is a family of sea snails with unusual, very loosely coiled shells. These are marine gastropod molluscs in the clade Sorbeoconcha. [more]
Ataphridae, common name the false top snails, is a family of sea snails, marine gastropod mollusks in the clade Vetigastropoda (according to the taxonomy of the Gastropoda by Bouchet & Rocroi, 2005). [more]
Turritellidae, the tower snails, is a taxonomic family of small to medium-sized sea snails, marine gastropod molluscs in the clade Sorbeoconcha. [more]
At least 29 species and subspecies belong to the Family Vitrinellidae.
