Cerithiozyga

Gastropoda - Sorbeoconcha - Popenellidae

Discussion

This is a possible mess: Bandel designated Promathildia Bittneri Kittl 1894 as the type species, but he did so based on specimens that Ntzel (2002) shows are not from that species.

Taxonomy
Cerithiozyga was named by Bandel (1992) [Sepkoski's age data: Tr Ladi-u Sepkoski's reference number: 1120].

It was assigned to Popenellidae by Bandel (1992); and to Neotaenioglossa by Sepkoski (2002).
