Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Allmon (1990) lists Buccinanops as a subgenus of Bullia Gray, 1834, on the grounds that ( 1 ) the ranges of conchological variation of these two groups of species overlap to the point that, if they were co-occurring it would be difficult to demonstrate any morphological gap between them (the chief difference being the consistent presence of a terminal columellar fold and occasionally much larger size in Buccinanops) (2) They have in common nonplanktonic larval development and blindness. (3) Analysis of fossil representatives of the Bullia group suggests that Bullia of South Africa is the direct descendant of Buccinanops from South America.
The loss of planktotrophy is nevertheless a character prone to occur repeatedly, and the genera are kept here separate following Malacolog database.  [details]
