Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorClassification The systematics of Tellinidae lacks a recent revision based on a phylogenetic hypothesis, and is currently in a state of confusion. Different approaches are taken according to authors, one of them being to list most of the species of Tellininae under the Linnean genus Tellina s.l. (e.g. Coan & Valentich-Scott, 2012), eventually distributed in subgenera, the opposite being to distribute the species among several genera (e.g. Nordsieck, 1969; Okutani, 2000; Mikkelsen & Bieler, 2008). The generic placements are usually not supported by phylogenetic reconstruction and are sometimes erroneous (e.g. placement of many European species in Angulus Megerle von Mühlfeldt, 1811).
Awaiting a definitive phylogenetic hypothesis of the subfamily Tellininae, the classification presented herein follows, unless otherwise stated, that of the Treasise on Invertebrate Paleontology (Keen in Moore, 1969). Most species are represented under Tellina s.l., as alternate representation to the combination with the different subgenera. Based on some leading sources (e.g. Okutani, 2000; Mikkelsen & Bieler, 2008, and recently published papers), we also list as alternate representation the combinations in which the subgenera of the Treatise are treated as full genus. Taxa newly published with the genus rank later than the Treatise, or formally raised to genus rank (not just usage as genus in a general textbook) will be maintained as such, without alternate representation, unless an alternative source downgrades the taxon as subgenus or synonym.  [details]
