informal group Architaenioglossa
Haller, 1890

Architaenioglossa is a taxonomic group of snails which have gills and often an operculum. They are primarily land and freshwater gastropod mollusks within the clade Caenogastropoda.[1]

This "informal group" has been shown to be polyphyletic in a study by Harasewych et al., published in 1998.[2]
