Taxon Notes:This family is no longer considered valid, and many genera formerly placed here have been assigned to other families. However, there are still a number of genera formerly placed here that do not fit into other currently recognised families, and these are retained here pending further research. See Fautin (2016). This code is provided for use when identification of a specimen to this level is sufficient, or when no further detail is available.
