Subfamily MONITILORINAE Taylor & Glover, 2011  

REMARKS

This subfamily was introduced for subcircular lucinids with closely spaced commarginal lamellae and fine radial ribs in the interspaces. The single species included in molecular analyses, Monitilora ramsayi ( Smith, 1885)   , forms a separate branch with an unstable position ( Taylor et al. 2011, 2014, 2016) but never aligns within any other of the major clades of Lucinidae   .
