Syrnolininae is a subfamily of minute parasitic sea snails, marine heterobranch gastropod molluscs in the family Pyramidellidae, the pyrams and their allies.[1]


According to the taxonomy of Ponder & Lindberg (1997),[2] this was one of eleven recognised subfamilies in the family Pyramidellidae.

In the taxonomy of Bouchet & Rocroi (2005),[1] this subfamily also comprises the subfamily Tiberiinae, downgraded to the rank of tribe Tiberiini.
