Abstract

Not since Hubendick's 1946 Systematic Monograph of the Patelliformia has a comprehensive taxonomic work been completed on the genus of false-limpets Siphonaria, distributed worldwide, except in the northern Atlantic. A checklist of all supra-specific names associated with Siphonaria is established. A checklist of all species-group names is provided as well and their nomenclatural status is discussed (available, not available, permanently invalid). Of the 270 species-group names included in the checklist, 205 are available and not permanently invalid. All other names are either not available or available but permanently invalid. The geographic distribution of the type localities is also presented; of the 205 species-group names that are available and not permanently invalid, 62 are from the tropical and subtropical Indo-West Pacific.
