Note 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy The original spelling in Cornelius (1992) was Leptothecata. Cornelius (1995a) changed the spelling to Leptothecatae, which seems unnecessary.
The subdivision of the Leptothecata into Conica and Proboscoida is not based on monophyletic groups (Leclère et al, 2007)  [details]
