Taxon Notes:Following Bouchet & Rocroi (2005), five families, previously only given subfamily status by many authors, are recognised in this goup - Buccinidae, Fasciolariidae, Melongenidae, Nassariidae and Colubrariidae. The previously recognised subfamily Pisaniinae is included within the Buccinidae. Another family (Belomitridae) was added by Kantor et al, 2012. This code is provided for use when identification of a specimen to this level is sufficient, or when no further detail is available.
