Trochomorphidae is a family of air-breathing land snails, terrestrial pulmonate gastropod mollusks in the superfamily Gastrodontoidea (according to the taxonomy of the Gastropoda by Bouchet & Rocroi, 2005).

This family has no subfamilies (according to the taxonomy of the Gastropoda by Bouchet & Rocroi, 2005).

Distribution[edit]

The distribution of Trochomorphidae includes eastern-Palearctic, India, south-eastern Asia, Australian and Polynesia.[2]

Anatomy[edit]

In this family, the number of haploid chromosomes lies between 26 and 30 (according to the values in this table).[3]

Genera[edit]

Genera within the family Trochomorphidae include:

  • Trochomorpha Albers, 1850 - type genus of the family Trochomorphidae

Some authors place the following two genera in this family, instead of in the family Zonitidae.
