Note 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorClassification Xylophagidae has often been treated as a subfamily of Pholadidae but Distel et al. (2011) showed it is more closely related to Teredinidae than to Pholadidae and Coan & Valentich-Scott (2012) treated it as a full family. [details]
