Scientific name
JE Gray (1840)

Heterobranchia is the scientific name for the snail parentage of the different gills . This superordinate group is a central taxon in the system of snails (gastropods), which includes not only very many, but also very different species of marine, freshwater and land snails. Known since JE Gray (1840), the heterobranchia appear in an adapted form in modern taxonomies of snails, most recently as a superordinate order in Ponder & Lindberg (1997) and as a clade in the current taxonomy of Bouchet & Rocroi (2005).
