Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorClassification Classification of chitons based on the conclusions of Okusu et al. 2003: Organisms, Diversity & Evolution 3, 281-302, mostly where supporting morphological conclusions of Sirenko 1993: Ruthenica 3, 97-117 (otherwise this molecular dataset does strange things with the outgroups and thus may not be taken as the basis for drastic changes in classification). [details]
