Classification The position of the Vermetidae has been controversial. However, sperm ultrastructure (Healy, 1988) and molecular data (e.g., Colgan et al. 2000) clearly show that it belongs in the Littorinimorpha although placement in the Cerithioidea still persist (e.g. Bandel & Kowalke, 1997; Kowalke, 1998; Bandel & Kiel, 2000). Lydeard et al. (2002) found Campanile and Serpulorbis [= Thylacodes] formed a clade that was sister to the Cerithioidea but outgroup sampling in this analysis was limited. [details]
