Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSynonymy Ammochares was for a time included in the Maldanidae following Grube (1851) but placed as type genus of Ammocharidae by Malmgren (1867). By 1915 McIntosh was including Ammochares in Owenia and referring Ammochares ottonis to Owenia fusiformis.  [details]
