An outline for the classification of Phylum Mollusca in taxonomic databases
[report elaborated by WoRMS editors for internal use, june 2010] [details]
From editor or global species database
Classification Wägele & Willan (2000) concluded that the Arminoida as classically understood (containing Arminidae, Goniaeolididae, Heterodorididae, Charcotiidae, Dironidae, Proctonotidae, Madrellidae, and Pinufiidae) are paraphyletic. The name Euarminida is used herein for the basal clade comprising Armina and Dermatobranchus in Wägele & Willan’s analysis, following in this Bouchet & Rocroi (2005).
Nevertheless Pola & Gosliner (2010) call for using the name Arminida.
