Taxon Notes:The higher classification of the Conidae (and Conoidea) has been variable for some time, but recent genetic studies have started to stabilise this. Here we follow Puillandre et al, 2015 for the current classification of this family. This code is provided for use when identification of a specimen to family level is sufficient, or when no further detail is available.
