Taxonomy
Poirieria was named by Jousseaume (1880) [Sepkoski's age data: K Ceno R Sepkoski's reference number: 1066]. It is extant. Its type is Murex zelandicus.

It was reranked as Murex (Poirieria) by Clench and Pérez Farfante (1945).

It was assigned to Murex by Clench and Pérez Farfante (1945); to Typhinae by Vokes (1970); to Muricidae by Todd (2001); to Neogastropoda by Sepkoski (2002); and to Muricinae by Merle and Pacaud (2002) and Landau and Marques da Silva (2010).
