The molecular data presented in this PhD thesis clearly show that Lissachatina consistently clusters as a monophyletic entity separate from Achatina and Fontanilla stated that there is no basis for continuing to employ Lissachatina as a subgenus of Achatina and that it should be regarded as a genus in it own right.
