Myophorelloidea

Bivalvia - Trigoniida

Taxonomy
Myophorellacea was named by Kobayashi (1954). It is not extant.

It was corrected as Myophorelloidea by Bouchet et al. (2010) and Carter et al. (2011).

It was assigned to Myophorellina by Pérez et al. (2008); and to Trigoniida by Bouchet et al. (2010) and Carter et al. (2011).
