Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorClassification Established as suborder containing the superfamilies Cocculinoidea and Lepetelloidea by Haszprunar (1987). Molecular work based on Coccopigya as representative of Cocculinidae and Notocrater as representative of Pseudococculinidae resulted in Cocculinoidea being polyphyletic (Colgan et al. 2003), with Lepetelloidea now placed in Vetigastropoda and Cocculinoidea placed outside them. The name Cocculiniformia is kept here in a restricted sense to mark the distinctiveness of Cocculinoidea. [details]
