    Abstract [sv]

    Den 18 juni 1715 försvarades uppsatsen De Fluviatili Astaco ejusque usu medico vid Uppsalauniversitet. Författaren var Lars Roberg ochämnet var kräftdjur av olika slag. Arbetet innehöllen figur och på denna avbildades tre fossil;en krabba och två svanssköldar från trilobiter. Fossil hade aldrig tidigare avbildats i trycktaarbeten i Sverige, och därmed blev Lars Robergför trehundra år sedan den första i Sverige attillustrera fossil, därtill även svenska sådana.

    The Bromell fossil collection at Uppsala University, Sweden: its history and the people behind it2013In: GFF, ISSN 1103-5897, E-ISSN 2000-0863, Vol. 135, no 1, 3-17 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Remains of 17(th) century cabinets of curiosity collections are held at the Museum of Evolution, Uppsala University, Sweden. Some of the oldest date back to the 1650s, and were included in the collection of Archiater, i.e. physician to the Crown, von Bromell (1679-1731). He is also known for publishing the first series of papers in Sweden to exclusively deal with palaeontology. Throughout his life he acquired specimens by collecting, buying or receiving in exchange to add to those he inherited from his father Olaus Bromelius, a famous botanist and physician. Information on the labels gives a glimpse of his network of friends, colleagues and fellow collectors, such as Kilian Stobaeus, Lars Roberg, Emanuel Swedenborg, Elias Brenner and Johan Dobelius. When Bromell died, his vast collections of books, coins, furniture, conchs, stuffed animals, minerals and fossils were sold off. The minerals and fossils were split up and owned by various persons during the following century. Parts owned by A. Lagerberg between the years 1746 and 1776 were bought in 1796 by Johan Afzelius and donated to Uppsala University at his death. Fossils and minerals earlier described by Bromell were in the care of The Royal Society of Science in Uppsala at least by 1791. Through the Institute of Geology, fossils accumulated over the centuries at Uppsala University eventually came together under the same roof in 1932, under professor Carl Wiman's care at the then newly erected Palaeontology museum building. Today, about 300 fossils from the Bromell collection are preserved at the museum.

    The tergomyan Mollusc Carcassonnella from the Upper Ordovician of Girvan, Scotland2008In: Palaeontology, ISSN 0031-0239, E-ISSN 1475-4983, Vol. 51, no Part 3, 663-675 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The tergomyan genus Carcassonnella Horny´ and Peel, 1996 is common in and characteristic of the Mediterranean Province in peri-Gondwanan terranes during the late Tremadoc and Arenig. It is united with other small, slitbearingcyrtonellids in the Carcassonnellidae Horny´ , 1997b, of which Baltiscanella Horny´ , 1997b from the Arenig of the Oslo Region, Norway, and Sarkanella from the Caradoc of the Siljan District, Sweden has been recognized outside the Mediterranean Province. The most inclusive view of the Carcassonnellidae unites Peelerophon Yochelson, 1982, Carcassonnella Horny´ and Peel, 1996, Sarkanella Horny´ , 1997a, Baltiscanella Horny´ , 1997b, and Tachillanella Horny´ , 1997b. Patterns of distribution of genera in the family are obscured, however, by widely different phylogenetic relationships presented in the literature. Here, Carcassonnella multilineata (Reed, 1920) is documented in the upper Whitehouse and Drummuck subgroups of the Girvan district, Midland Valley of Scotland, being the first record of the genus outside peri-Gondwana. Its enigmatic occurrence on the edge of Laurentia is opposed to the occurrence of low latitude benthic faunas in higher latitudes during this time interval (the Boda Event). It is likely, therefore, that the genus spread from the ancient stock found on the Perunican microcontinent as this drifted away from Gondwana in the mid-Caradoc.

    Carl Wiman and the foundation of Mesozoic vertebrate palaeontology in Sweden2016In: Mesozoic Biotas Of Scandinavia And Its Arctic Territories, Geological Society, 2016, 15-29 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In 1908, Carl Wiman of Uppsala University, Sweden, discovered rich horizons with Triassic vertebrate remains in Spitsbergen on Svalbard, Norway. This marked the beginning of vertebrate palaeontology as a science in Sweden, subsequently developed mainly through the collection and study of non-Swedish fossil remains. Wiman's accomplishments, resolute personality and a tight network of influential friends and supporters enabled him to become the first person in Sweden to hold a university chair in Palaeontology and Historical Geology. He also managed to amass large numbers of unique fossil vertebrate specimens culminating in an extensive Chinese collection of both world famous dinosaurs and Neogene mammals deposited at Uppsala University. Joint scientific Sino-Swedish collaboration and a deliberate Swedish scientific agenda ensured this unprecedented situation in an opportune moment. Governmental support and initiative allowed Uppsala University and Carl Wiman's Palaeontological Institute to erect a museum building dedicated foremost to the Chinese material, now known as the Lagrelius Collection in recognition of the patron behind Wiman's ambitious endeavours. In addition, the museum served as a permanent repository for seminal collections of Mesozoic fossils from Svalbard and North America. Collectively, these represent a landmark research and teaching resource that remains of intense scientific interest even today.

    Gastropods in the Ordovician and Silurian successions on Anticosti island, eastern Canada2006In: Gastropods in the Ordovician and Silurian successions on Anticosti island, eastern Canada. Gastropods in the Ordovician and Silurian successions on Anticosti island, eastern Canada, Vol. 38, No. 7, 2006, 402- p.Conference paper (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Anticosti Island is located in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, Quebec, in eastern Canada. Relatively undisturbed Ordovician and Silurian sediments are preserved, with surface exposures ranging from the Ashgill (Rawtheyan) to the Llandovery (Telychian). Depositionally, they represent a shallow marine carbonate environment where Anticosti lies roughly parallel to the ancient shore line.

    Gastropods are an important and prominent faunal component in the Ordovician and Silurian successions, with 58 species described. The current study, which is aimed at revising systematics, biostratigraphy, and biogeography of the gastropod fauna, has recognized several genera and species new to the island. The study is based on several large museum collections, but primarily on the unique material assembled by professor Paul Copper, Laurentian University, Canada.

    Gastropods are found throughout the succession but their spatial distribution and ecological biofacies have yet to be mapped. Gastropod biogeography of Anticosti largely follows a pattern similar to that of trilobites and brachiopods. In the Ordovician Ellis Bay Formation especially, strong affinity with faunas from Baltica and eastern and marginal Laurentia is evident (for instance Tritonophon, Phragmolites, Pterotheca, Brachytomaria, and Arjamannia). Rare specimens of Pilina occur in the La Framboise reefs, a genus otherwise found sparsely in eastern Laurentia and more commonly in Baltica during the late Ordovician; Silurian forms of the genus are missing in Anticosti.

    The Silurian fauna comprises widespread genera like Sphenosphaera and Salpingostoma, while a Phanerotrema species in the Jupiter Formation may be conspecific with forms found in Baltica. However, there is also a conspicuous near absence of otherwise common and widespread Silurian taxa such as Oriostoma and Euomphalopterus, which on Anticosti are only rarely seen in the reefal build-up of the Chicotte Formation. Similar patterns in trilobite distributions have been discussed as a function the pervading biofacies at deposition.

    Burlingiid trilobites from the Cambrian of Norway, with a discussion of their affinities and relationships2002In: Palaentology, Vol. 45, 1171-1195 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Four Middle and Upper Cambrian burlingiid trilobites from the Oslo Region, Norway, are described including Burlingia angusta sp. nov. from the Ptychagnostus punctuosus Zone and Schmalenseeia athrotryphe sp. nov. from the lower part of the Lejopyge laevigata Zone. New complete material previously attributed to Schmalenseeia jagoi Whittington is assigned to Burlingia. Cladistic analysis supports the genera Burlingia and Schmalenseeia as currently understood, including the placement of the controversial middle Middle Cambrian Schmalenseeia acutangula Westergård in Schmalenseeia, even though it lacks typical characters of the genus such as the median ridge on the preglabellar field. The analysis also supports burlingiid monophyly, and suggests that Schmalenseeia was derived from a broadly Burlingia-like ancestor, with S. acutangula displaying how the transition may have occurred. The broader relationships of Burlingia remain obscure, although similarities between burlingiids and the arthropod Kleptothule from the Early Cambrian Sirius Passet fauna are discussed: these include overall form, lack of functional hinges in the thorax, and details of the cephalic region. It is unclear whether these similarities represent general progenetic features, are functional convergences or, less likely, represent a genuine relationship.

    First occurrence of Pterotheca (Gastropoda) from the Silurian (Aeronian) of Spain2017In: Geobios, ISSN 0016-6995, E-ISSN 1777-5728, Vol. 50, no 2, 97-104 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Pterotheca hispanica nov. sp. is described from the basal beds (Stimulograptus sedgwickii graptolite Zone) of the Formigoso Fm., in the Cantabrian Zone of the Iberian Massif, north-western Spain. This specialized bellerophontoid gastropod is for the first time recorded in the Silurian of peri-Gondwana; it is the only Aeronian species known so far. Its most closely allied relatives are from higher beds placed in the Telychian of Scotland. Pterotheca is considered a highly derived genus within the Pterothecinae of the Carinaropsidae, with the strongly reduced to absent coiling and the growth of the septum being synapomorphies. In the present work it is shown that not only the apical angle of the septum can be used to distinguish species, but also the relative length and width of the septum. In some cases, the slit may extend as far back as the anterior part of the internal septum. Silurian species were hitherto only found in marginal Laurentian and Eastern Avalonian settings. Pterotheca is absent from central Laurentia and Baltica, where it could be expected to be present based on its wide Ordovician distribution. In the light of this, the occurrence of the genus in the Aeronian of Spain seems difficult to explain, albeit the genus was present in peri-Gondwana prior to the end-Ordovician extinction. The extreme scarcity of described taxa recorded from Avalonia, Baltica and Iberia during the Early Silurian may explain this patchy distribution.

    Biogeography of Ordovician – Devonian tergomyans and gastropods: outline of project.2009In: Absolutely final meeting of IGCP 503: Ordovician palaeogeography and palaeoclimate - Copenhagen 2009 - August 31 – September 4, Copenhagen: Geological Museum, Natural History Museums , 2009, 7- p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Analyses of distribution and occurrences of both trilobites and brachiopods have been pivotal for the current understanding of Lower Palaeozoic biogeography. A fruitful coupling with palaeomagnetic studies has recently produced highly accurate palaeomaps for the Ordovician and Silurian. Tergomyan molluscs and gastropods represent abundant and diverse marine benthos with a huge potential for further detailing of Lower Palaeozoic biogeography. In the present project we aim at analysis of Ordovican – Devonian members of these groups, on a stage by stage level. The analysis will be at the generic level, because very few species seem to be common between the various palaeo terranes. This is especially true for the Ordovician. Although a number of important contributions on diversity and distribution exist, these molluscs have never been subjected to a large-scale numerical analysis. In the literature, Ordovican taxa such as Peelerophon (Tergomya), Tritonophon (Gastropoda), and the widespread macluritid gastropods have been recognized as useful for biogeographical studies. For Silurian, and particularly Devonian taxa, a much better understanding of biogoeographical distribution exists. Devonian gastropods have for instance been used to formalize distinct biogeographical realms. The current project involves several experts, with the two authors as principal coordinators.

    Biogeography of Ordovician and Silurian gastropods, monoplacophorans and mimospirids2013In: Memoir Geological Society of London, Vol. 38, 199-220 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The biogeographical distribution of Ordovician and Silurian gastropods, monoplacophorans and mimospirids has beenanalysed on a generic level. The dataset contains 334 genera and 2769 species, yielding 1231 records of genera with 2274 occurrencesworldwide. There is a bias towards eastern Laurentia, Baltica and Perunica records. Some 53.1% of the records are Ordovician. The study demonstrates that these molluscs are well suited to being used to improve understanding of Ordovician and Silurian biogeographicalprovinciality. Specific points are that: a Lower Ordovician assemblage is evident in Laurentia; the fauna of the Argentinean Precordillera is Laurentian until the Darriwilian, when taxa are shared with North China; Late Silurian gastropods from the Alexander terrane (SE Alaska) are unknown in Laurentia, but support a rift origin of this terrane from NE Siberia; Perunica, Ibero-Armorica and Morocco cluster together throughout the Ordovician but Perunica and Morocco are closer; Darriwilian–Sandbian deep-water Bohemian taxaoccur in Baltica; a Laurentian–Baltica proximity is unsupported until the Silurian; Siberia clusters with North China and eastern Laurentia during the Tremadocian–Darriwilian; during the Gorstian–Pridoli Siberia clusters with the Farewell and Alexander terranes; North China may have been close to Laurentia and the Argentinean margin of Gondwana; and the affinity of Tarim taxa is problematic.

    Integration of new isotopic data and earlier biostratigraphic information from eight sections through the terminal Ordovician (Pirgu and Porkuni stages) of the Siljan district, Sweden, allows a more precise correlation of sections in terms of biostratigraphy and carbon isotope dating. Four levels with positive delta C-13 excursions are identified (from bottom) - the Moe, an unnamed excursion, Paroveja and Hirnantian Carbon Isotope Excursion (HICE). The delta C-13 values through the Boda Limestone are 1-2 parts per thousand higher than usual in Baltica, only the values for the HICE remains within what is expected. Background values increase from 1.5 parts per thousand in the bottom of the core of the Boda Limestone up to 3 parts per thousand in the top of it. The HICE is identified in five of eight sections and the main peak falls according to inferred correlation within the Metabolograptus persculptus Biozone, at or close to the Hindella beds in the Upper Boda Member. The late Katian (Pirgu) age of Holorhynchus in the Siljan district is clear and its co-occurrence with the chitinozoan Belonechitina gamachiana in Estonia supports a Katian age for this zone. The base of the Ozarkodina hassi Biozone may occur within units B-C of the Upper Boda Member and in the upper part of the Loka Formation and most likely is correlated with the M. persculptus Biozone. The Hirnantia-Dalmanitina faunas reported from the lowermost part of the Loka Formation and units B-D of the Upper Boda Member seem to range through all the Hirnantian, but detailed morphological studies allow to distinguish an older (=extraordinarius) and a younger (=persculptus) fauna.

    Gastropods and tergomyans from the Upper Ordovician (Viru–Harju) of the Fågelsång area, Scania, southern Sweden2013In: Journal of Systematic Palaeontology, ISSN 1477-2019, E-ISSN 1478-0941, Vol. 11, no 3, 295-336 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A diverse tergomyan and gastropod assemblage is described from the Global Boundary Stratotype Section and Point (GSSP)section of the Sandbian Stage, Upper Ordovician, in the Fågelsång area, Scania, southern Sweden. Deep water graptolitic mudstone and shale comprise the succession, and previously only one gastropod species was known. The new material spans the Sularp Formation through the Lindegård Mudstone (Nemagraptus gracilisDicellograptus complanatus biozones). Fourteen species are described: two tergomyan, five bellerophontoid gastropods, and seven anisostrophically coiled gastropods.Three species are new: Peelerophon hodites, Tetranota scanica and Lophospira sandbiana. Three taxa (Tritonophon subtrilobatus,Tetranota scanica and Holopea mobergi) are found high in the Lindegård Mudstone (Vormsi–Pirgu stages). Cyrtodiscus, Peelerophon and Tritonophon are recorded for the first time in Baltoscandia. Some taxa may have been transportedfrom shallower water settings, whereas species of Peelerophon, Joleaudella, Mestoronema and Sinuites may have been partof the local benthos. Except for Bucania erratica, no species are shared with the fauna of the coeval Dalby Limestone in Sweden. Deaechospira elliptica, common in the Dalby Limestone, is not recorded at Fågelsång, although two closely relatedspecies are found (Deaechospira rotunda and Deaechospira? sp.). The Fågelsång assemblage has more in common with the older to coeval fauna of the Elnes and Arnestad formations in the Oslo Region, Norway (e.g. sharing Joleaudella, Sinuites, Mestoronema and Pararaphistoma). The Sandbian fauna of Fågelsång includes peri-Gondwanan taxa, e.g. Cyrtodiscus,Peelerophon and Deaechospira. Nevertheless, cluster analysis reveals that the faunas of Baltica and Laurentia were most similar, whereas faunas from Perunica and Baltica remained distinct and separated during the Darriwilian–Sandbian. The few similarities may result from spread of a temperate fauna supplementing rather than replacing taxa in deep water assemblages.The main Fåagelsång assemblage coincides both with the Baltoscandian Middle Caradoc Faunal Turnover and the Gutenberg Carbon Isotope Excursion.

    Tergomyans, gastropods, and biogeography in the Upper Ordovician of the Fågelsång district, southern Sweden2009In: Absolutely final meeting of IGCP 503: Ordovician palaeogeography and palaeoclimate - Copenhagen 2009 - August 31 – September 4, Copenhagen: Geological Museum, Natural History Museums , 2009, 24- p.Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    During the Ordovician, deep-water graptolitic mudstone and shale formed in what is now the classical succession at Fågelsång, southern Sweden. Previously, only one gastropod species was described from the succession, but during this study diverse tergomyan and gastropod assemblages have been recognized both from outcrop and drill-core collections. The material spans the Sularp Shale through the Lindegård Mudstone (Nemagraptus gracilis − Dicellograptus complanatus Zones; Sandbian − Katian, Viru − Harju regional stages). Altogether 14 species are described; two tergomyan, five bellerophontoid gastropods, and six anisostrophically coiled gastropods. Three taxa (Tritonophon, Tetranota and Holopea) are found in the Lindegård mudstone. The first record of Tritonophon in the Ordovician of Baltoscandia occurs in the Fågelsång and nearby Röstånga area. The remaining taxa are from the Sularp, Skagen, and Mossen formations. Specimens may have been transported into the area from shallower settings, while species of Peelerophon, Cyrtodiscus, Joleaudella, and Sinuites, are interpreted as having been part of the local benthos. With the exception of Bucania and Deaechospira, no other taxa are common to the hitherto described gastropod fauna of the coeval Dalby Limestone in other parts of Sweden. The Fågelsång assemblages have more in common with the slightly older or coeval fauna of the Elnes to Arnestad formations in the Oslo Region (e.g. Joleaudella, Sinuites, Mestoronema, Pararaphistoma). The Sandbian taxa show similarities with peri-Gondwanan faunas (e.g. Peelerophon, Cyrtodiscus). Both Peelerophon and Cyrtodiscus are for the first time recorded from Baltoscandia. The hitherto endemic Baltoscandian taxon Deaechospira may also be recognized in Bohemia and Morocco.

    Upper Ordovician carbon isotope records in the Siljan district, Sweden2009In: Absolutely final meeting of IGCP 503: Ordovician palaeogeography and palaeoclimate - Copenhagen 2009 - August 31 – September 4, Copenhagen: Geological Museum, Natural History Museums , 2009, 23-24 p.Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The Upper Ordovician Boda Limestone and the unconformably overlying Glisstjärn Formation in the Siljan district, Sweden, were sampled for carbon isotope analysis. The aim is to combine chemo- andAbsolutely final meeting of IGCP 503: Ordovician palaeogeography and palaeoclimate - Copenhagen 2009 - August 31 – September 424biostratigraphy for detailed regional correlation. This may help further studies of the time interval spanning the two-phased end Ordovician extinction. Expanding upon the study by Schmitz & Bergström (2007), five quarries, eight sections (669 samples) were studied; two sections each in Kallholn, Osmundsberget, and Solberga, and one section each in Östbjörka and Jutjärn. The Glisstjärn Formation is exposed only in one section at Kallholn, both sections at Osmundsberget, and possibly at one section in Solberga. A cephalopod event bed is recognized in one section in Kallholn and the two sections in Osmundsberget. Additionally, a thick coquina consisting of the brachiopod Hindella is found in all quarries except Solberga. The Hirnantian Isotope Carbon Excursion (HICE) was positively identified in seven of the eight sections. The peak occurs at the Hindella bed in all sections. The beginning of the excursion in Osmundsberget is placed slightly higher than in the previous study, at about 14 m from the top of the Boda Limestone, which means it is above the level with the brachiopod Holorhynchus (identified both in Osmundsberget and Solberga). In Osmundsberget, Östbjörka and Jutjärn, sampling of the deeper parts of the Boda Limestone yielded δ13C values between + 1 and + 3 ‰, with two or three peaks higher than + 3 ‰, that may be correlated between the sections

    Stratigraphy of the Ediacaran and basal Cambrian of the Digermulen Peninsula, Northern Norway2015In: Geological Society of America Abstracts with Programs, vol 47, 2015, Vol. 47Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The succession of the Digermulen Peninsula in Finnmark, northern Norway, is the only fossiliferous site inScandinavia with sedimentation across the Ediacaran–Cambrian transition without a significant hiatus. Geologicalinvestigations started in the 1930’s, but the Peninsula was first mapped in the 60’s. Ediacara-type fossils werefirst discovered in the late 80’s but recent discoveries will establish the Digermulen Peninsula as one of the mostsignificant Ediacaran sites in northern Europe. The parautochthonous strata are exposed in the Tanafjord areaalong the coast and in valleys on the east side of the Peninsula. The beds dip slightly to the west with the strikefollowing the coastline (ca. 045°). The Ediacaran succession is close to 1000 m thick and dominantly siliciclastic.It starts with interglacial sediments of the Nyborg Formation (tentatively the earliest Ediacaran), overlying astacked succession of diamictites of the Cryogenian Smalfjord Formation. After a hiatus follows the glaciogenicdiamictites of the Mortensnes Formation (~60 m thick), which is commonly seen to represent the ~582 Ma-oldGaskiers glaciation. Upwards, the contact to the overlying Stáhpogiedde Formation is not exposed locally, but hasbeen shown to represent a hiatus followed by transitional fluvial to marine sediments of the Lillevannet Member.Ediacaran-type fossils appear in the succeeding Innerelva Member. This is a two-cycle deepening upwardssuccession of laminated mudstone with intercalated sand bodies showing load structures. Preliminary microfossilssamples of the Member have so far proven almost barren, making dating more challenging. The basal part of thesucceeding Manndraperelva Member consists of three cycles; first a succession of reddish sandstone followed bytwo coarsening-upward cycles. Each starts with mudstone and fine sandstone and terminates in cross-beddedsandstone. The Ediacaran–Cambrian boundary is located within the third cycle, identified by the trace fossilTreptichnus pedum and associated trilobed trace fossils.The Digermulen Early Life Research Group has since2011 made significant new finds, and focused fieldwork aims to resolve tighter age constraints, provenance of thesediments and the range and diversity of the extended Ediacaran biota.

    An unusual onychochilid mollusc from the Ordovician (Tremadocian) Fezouata Formation, Morocco2015In: Geobios, ISSN 0016-6995, E-ISSN 1777-5728, Vol. 48, no 6, 427-438 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Pelecyogyra fezouataensis nov. gen., nov. sp. is described from the Lower Ordovician (Tremadocian, A. murrayi Biozone) Fezouata Formation at Oued Beni Zoli (locality Z-F5), in the central Anti-Atlas, Morocco. This is the first Onychochilidae Koken in Koken and Perner, 1925 reported from the Ordovician of Morocco. Its stratigraphical position bridges the gap between the late Cambrian and Middle to Upper Ordovician records. This new taxon draws together large specimens, reaching 27 mm in the greatest diameter, with 3 rapidly expanding whorls. All specimens are invariably preserved as dorsoventrally compressed moulds although preservation suggests that the degree of compaction was not great and that the species was generally low spired. A characteristic axe-shaped apertural lip and an ornamentation consisting of fine and dense lirae serve to distinguish the new genus from other onychochilids. The species appears to have been gregarious. In some specimens, small scalloped injuries are preserved along the apertural margins but these are not considered to reflect failed predation. Up to now, twenty-two species and eight genera of Ordovician onychochilids have been documented, being distributed in eight different terranes. The composition of the Onychochilidae is briefly reviewed and updated from the literature, to include Helicotis? Koken in Koken and Perner, 1925, Hyperstrophema Horný, 1964, Invertospira Horný, 1964, Kobayashiella Endo, 1937, Laeogyra Perner, 1903, Matherella Walcott, 1912, Matherellina Kobayashi, 1937, Onychochilus Lindström, 1884, Pelecyogyra nov. gen., Pervertina Horný, 1964, Scaevogyra Whitfield, 1878, Sinistracirsa Cossmann, 1908, Versispira Perner, 1903, and Voskopiella Frýda, 1992. Onychochilidae and Clisospiridae are placed in Mimospirida Dzik, 1983, regarding Hyperstrophina Linsley and Kier, 1984 as a junior synonym.
