The Achatinoidea are a superfamily of air-breathing land snails and slugs, terrestrial gastropod mollusks in the informal group Sigmurethra.[1]

2005 taxonomy[edit]

According to taxonomy of the Gastropoda by Bouchet & Rocroi, 2005 there are four families within the superfamily Achatinoidea,[1] that is based on the study by Nordsieck, published in 1986.[1][2]

2017 taxonomy[edit]

Fontanilla et al. recognized Subulinidae as not monophyletic in 2017 and they classified Subulininae within Achatinidae.[3]
