Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorClassification As originally introduced for Caenogastropoda and Allogastropoda (i.e. stem-group Heterobranchia), the taxon Apogastropoda is paraphyletic. The name Apogastropoda was used by Ponder & Lindberg, 1997 for the clade [Caenogastropoda + Heterobranchia]. It is used in Tree of Life web project but neither in Bouchet & Rocroi (2005) nor in Fauna of Australia (Beesley et al. 1998) and is here skipped in the classification.  [details]
