  1. aCurrently classified in Corbitellinae, but see Table 1: footnote c of [3]
  2. bThis genus was recently reclassified as a subgenus of Caulophacus ([83]; following [26]). However, molecular data do not support inclusion of Caulophacella tenuis in Caulophacus [3, 16]. Therefore, we here retained Caulophacella as a terminal taxon
