Taxon Notes:This group was previously considered a family with many subfamilies, almost of which are now considered to be distinct families. Three previous subfamilies now considered distinct families (Turbinidae s.s., Liotiidae, and Areneidae) are included in this CAAB code, while three others now have separate CAAB codes (Angariidae (24 041000), Colloniidae (24 043000) and Phasianellidae (24 042000)).
