Taxonomy A comprehensive treatment of the Recent members of family Tellinidae was provided by Huber, Langleit & Kreipl (2015), rejecting the long-standing subfamilies Tellininae and Macominae as defined by Keen in Moore (1969), and recognizing nine subfamilies. In this view, which has been followed in WoRMS and MolluscaBase, Tellina is restricted to very few species of the Caribbean area, and all the subgenera of Tellina are given full genus status. Other contemporary authors e.g. Coan & Valentich-Scott (2012) have a more conservative view including many subgnera in Tellina s.l. The palaeontological literature has not, so far (2019), endorsed the view of Huber et al. and continued using Tellina in a broad sense. Therefore there may be a mismatch in generic concepts from different sources, but. WoRMS and MollscaBase will only record generic assignments formally proposed in published sources and not make new taxonomic decisions for the sake of consistency.  [details]
