Taxonomy

2005 taxonomy

According to the taxonomy of the Gastropoda (Bouchet & Rocroi, 2005), it is a superfamily in the informal group Basommatophora, within the Pulmonata.[3]

This superfamily has contained only one family, the Amphibolidae.[3]

2007 taxonomy

Golding et al. (2007)[2] have established new families:

2010 taxonomy

Basommatophora (Siphonarioidea and Amphiboloidea and Hygrophila) have been found polyphyletic and so Jörger et al. (2010)[1] have moved Amphiboloidea to Panpulmonata.
