Taxon Notes:The systematic position of this genus is still problematical. It has been placed in several different families within the Vetigastropoda in recent years. Here, we retain it within the Liotiidae, pending a detailed review that includes genetic data. This code is provided for use when identification of a specimen to this level is sufficient, or when no further detail is available.
