Lottiidae in the World Register of Marine Species

Lottiidae is a family of sea snails, specifically true limpets, marine gastropod mollusks in the superfamily Lottioidea and the clade Patellogastropoda (according to the taxonomy of the Gastropoda by Bouchet & Rocroi, 2005).

Subfamilies
2005 taxonomy

This family consists of the two following subfamilies (according to the taxonomy of the Gastropoda by Bouchet & Rocroi, 2005):

Lottiinae Gray, 1840
tribe Lottiini Gray, 1840 - synonym: Tecturidae Gray, 1847
tribe Scurriini Lindberg, 1988
Patelloidinae Chapman & Gabriel, 1923

A live individual of Discurria insessa
2007 taxonomy

Nakano & Ozawa (2007)[3] made changes in taxonomy of Patellogastropoda based on molecular phylogeny research: Acmaeidae Forbes, 1850 is a synonym of Lottiidae and assigned genera Acmaea and Niveotectura into Lottiidae.
