Helicinoidea

Helicina concentrica, from here.


Belongs within: Neritimorpha.

Helicinoidea is a clade recognised by molecular analysis containing the terrestrial Helicinidae and the Neritiliidae, found in fresh water and marine caves. No definite morphological synapomorphies have been identified, though both families have the vaginal and ootype openings widely separated, and the vaginal opening situated deep inside the pallial cavity (Kano et al. 2002).
