Classification The distinctiveness of the radula, which seems to have been the main reason for a superfamily level for this group (McLean 1990b), seems to be an apomorphy. Fretter (1990) considered neolepetopsids closer to Acmaeidae than to other patellogastropod limpets from anatomical data and Harasewych & McArthur (2000) indicated close relations to Acmaeidae from 18S information, but were confused by the presence of a central tooth in the radula. The central tooth, however, is present in young Patellidae, Nacellidae and Acmaeidae, but is lost during ontogeny (Warén, unpublished). Neolepetopsis was not included in the molecular phylogeny of Nakano & Ozawa (2007), but was included "under Acmaeoidea" by Lindberg (in Beesley et al. 1998). [details]
