Lottiidae is a family of sea snails, specifically true limpets, marine gastropod mollusks in the superfamily Lottioidea and the clade Patellogastropoda (according to the taxonomy of the Gastropoda by Bouchet & Rocroi, 2005).

Subfamilies[edit]

2005 taxonomy[edit]

This family consists of the two following subfamilies (according to the taxonomy of the Gastropoda by Bouchet & Rocroi, 2005):

  • Lottiinae Gray, 1840
    • tribe Lottiini Gray, 1840 - synonym: Tecturidae Gray, 1847
    • tribe Scurriini Lindberg, 1988
  • Patelloidinae Chapman & Gabriel, 1923
A live individual of Discurria insessa

2007 taxonomy[edit]

Nakano & Ozawa (2007)[2] made changes in taxonomy of Patellogastropoda based on molecular phylogeny research: Acmaeidae Forbes, 1850 is a synonym of Lottiidae and assigned genera Acmaea and Niveotectura into Lottiidae.
