Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorNomenclature Despite its incorrect formation (the correct one would be Cassididae, based on the genitive form of Cassis), the ICZN has placed the name Cassidae Latreille, 1825 on the official list of family names, therefore avoiding homonymy with Cassididae Stephens, 1831 (based on Cassida Linnaeus, 1758, a chrysomelid beetle); Opinion 1023 (1974, Bulletin of Zoological Nomenclature 31: 127-129. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Bouchet & Rocroi (2005) listed Cassidae as a synonym of Tonnidae Suter, 1913 (1825), following in this Riedel (1995). The two families are here maintained separate following Beu (2008: 272) [details]
