  • A cladistic analysis of the Tegulinae (Turbinidae) is presented using 132 morphological characters and 41 taxa. Tegulinae is recovered and is sister to Prisogaster niger (Prisogasterinae) within the family Turbinidae. This scenario, with Tegulinae as a subfamily within Turbinidae, corroborates with the most molecular analyses. Tegulinae comprises >40 extant species, belonging to eight genera. Morphological studies have not resolved the placement of Tegulinae within Trochoidea sufficiently, and… CONTINUE READING
