Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorClassification Some authors (e.g. Winckworth, 1932; Nordsieck, 1969) put all species that are shaped like a knife in the family of Solenidae Lamarck, 1809. Then two subfamilies can be distinguished: the Cultellinae Davies, 1935 [now accepted as Pharidae Adams & Adams, 1856] and the Soleninae Lamarck, 1809. Later on the two subfamilies were regarded seperate families (e.g. McKay & Smith, 1979; Janssen et al., 1984). [details]
