Diagnosis Protoconch dome-shaped, variable in size, smooth or more or less axially ribbed. Body whorl medium to large, solid, often coronated with knobs or spines. Rich, tent-like, very variable pattern. [details]

Spelling Original spelling (tribe) Meloides. The spelling Meloini was previously in use, and it is a homonym of Meloini/Meloinae Gyllenhal, 1810, based on Meloe Linnaeus, 1758 [Coleoptera]. However, the genitive of Melo is Melonis, and thus the stem of a family-group name based on Melo is Melon-, hence the spelling Melonini. [details]
