Solariellidae is a family of small sea snails, marine gastropod mollusks in the superfamily Trochoidea (according to the taxonomy of the Gastropoda by Bouchet & Rocroi, 2005).[1]

This family has no subfamilies.

This family consists of extremely diverse species and needs taxonomic revision. The relationship between genera are often uncertain. Many species remain undescribed or have been recently described.[2][3][4][5]

Description[edit]

Most species in this family are small, usually up to 10 mm. They show a diverse range of morphologies.The shell has a conical shape with rounded whorls and a wide umbilicus.

Distribution[edit]

The species in the family Solariellidae occur worldwide from the sublittoral zone to bathyal depths.

Genera[edit]
