Raphitomidae is a family of small to medium-sized sea snails, marine gastropod mollusks in the superfamily Conoidea.[1][2]

Bouchet, Kantor et al. elevated in 2011 the subfamily Raphitominae (which at that point had been placed in the family Conidae) to the rank of family. This was based on a cladistical analysis of shell morphology, radular characteristics, anatomical characters, and a dataset of molecular sequences of three gene fragments [1]

Description[edit]

The Raphitomidae is the largest and most variable taxon in the Conoidea, with the greatest number of species and the largest vertical range (intertidal to hadal depths). [1]

The Raphitomidae have shells which are very variable in shape (buccinoid to ovate, elongate-fusiform, or high-cylindrical) and size (2 to 140mm in height). Similarly, shell sculpture is extremely variable, from nearly smooth to well developed spiral and axial elements and subsutural ramps. Common morphology includes apertural armature rarely well developed, inner lip usually smooth, no operculum, radular tooth hypodermic in character with marginal teeth of variable morphology (including variable length).[1]

Genera[edit]

This is a list of the accepted names of genera in the family Raphitomidae (the main reference for recent species is the World Register of Marine Species)[3]
