Note Originally included species are Helix...  
Type species Originally included species are Helix nitidissima J. Adams, 1800 (cited as Euomphalus nitidissimus), Skenea rota Forbes & Hanley, 1850 (cited as E. rota), and Skenea tricarinata Webster, 1856 (cited as E. rota var. tricarinata), but not Truncatella atomus following ICZN art. 67.2.3. The designation of Omalogyra atomus as type species by Tate (1868) is valid because (ICZN art. 69.2.2) he cited Skenea nitidissima as a synonym. However Helix nitidissima J. Adams, 1800 is considered to be a land snail (see Bieler & Mikkelsen, 1998: 5) and the name was misapplied in Forbes & Hanley (1850) and Jeffreys (1859) to designate Omalogyra atomus; the misidentification was later recognized by Jeffreys (1867: 71). Here ICZN art. 70.3 could apply but, at the time of Bieler & Mikkelsen, 1985, such a case was to be referred to the Commission. [details]
