Taxonomy  Huber (2015: 370) wrote "The application of genera [among Limopsidae] is therefore unsubstantiated and premature... for the time being the subgeneric a approach is upheld, representing the best solution currently available", and this is followed herein, notwithstanding the contrary view of Janssen (2015) who treated all the currently accepted subgenera as full genera (and was followed in WoRMS at one time). Coan & Valentich-Scott (2012: 208) also concur in that " [Limopsis] has been split into several groups (...) but these characters are mutable and numerous intergrades occur."
