Systematic malacology according to J.Thiele

Johannes Thiele(1860-1935)is one of the fathers of modern malacology.His work Handbuch der systematischen weichtierkunde(1929-1935)provided malacologists with a basis to work with.Although many parts are now outdated due to new research and insights it is still a good reference.Originally published in four parts,the english trans- lation has two.On this page and the following pages I've put Thiele's classification. The links refer to pages where you can find more information on that Family or sub- family.
