From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorClassification A group proposed, with equal rank to Placophora, for including all molluscs except the chitons, included in Placophora. Nowadays used for all molluscs excluding Polyplacophora, Solenogastres and Caudofoveata but it must be kept in mind the latter groups, although known to Gegenbaur (the name Solenogastres was introduced in the same book as Conchifera), were not considered by him as belonging to the Mollusca.

Not to be confused with Conchifera Lamarck, 1818, which is at large a synonym of Bivalvia.  [details]
