The Glacidorbidae is a taxonomic family of freshwater snails, gastropod mollusks in the clade Panpulmonata.[3]


2005 taxonomy

Glacidorbidae is the only family in the superfamily Glacidorboidea.[4] Glacidorboidea has been classified within the informal group Lower Heterobranchia in the taxonomy of Bouchet & Rocroi (2005).[4]

2010 taxonomy

Jörger et al. (2010)[3] redefined the major groups within the Heterobranchia; they moved Glacidorboidea to Panpulmonata.[3]


Genera within the family Glacidorbidae include:[5]
