Remark Type species: Littorina pulchra Sowerby, 1832 (Bandel & Kadolsky, 1982). Genus contains more than 20 species, which were all believed to be Littorina scabra, a very variable species. Several taxonomic revisions have been done, resulting in quite some confusion. We followed the revision of DG Reid <132>. [details]
