Gastropoda - Pleurotomariidae

Pleurotomaria was named by Defrance (1826) [Sepkoski's age data: Tr Anis K Maes-u Sepkoski's reference number: 661,888,1130. NOTE: many Paleozoic gastropod species still are left in this genus, but NONE belong there.]. It is the type genus of Pleurotomarioidea, Pleurotomariinae.

It was reranked as Trochonema (Pleurotomaria) by Hall (1867); it was reranked as Euomphalus (Pleurotomaria) by Remelé (1888).

It was assigned to Trochonema by Hall (1867); to Euomphalus by Remelé (1888); to Archaeogastropoda by Sepkoski (2002); and to Pleurotomariidae by Swainson (1840), Knight et al. (1960), Szabo (1980), Bouchet et al. (2005) and Ferrari (2014).
