Tonnoidea

provided by wikipedia EN

The Tonnoidea are a superfamily of sea snails, marine gastropod molluscs in the order Littorinimorpha.[1][2] This superfamily includes many very large species.

Nomenclature

Beu (1998, 2008) favours usage of Tonnoidea and Tonnidae rather than Cassoidea and Cassidae preferred by Riedel (1995). This is in agreement with the action of Thiele (1925) who placed Tonnidae and Cassidae under "stirps Tonnacea", therefore acting as first reviser under ICZN art. 24
