This chapter examines the phylogeny of the three gastropod clades of Patellogastropoda, Cocculinoidea, and Neritimorpha. It explains that all three taxa are low in species diversity and their placement on the gastropod class, and therefore their relationships to each other and to other gastropod groups remain problematic. It describes the key features of the members of these three clades and highlights the need for further phylogenetic studies.

Keywords: gastropod clades; Patellogastropoda; Cocculinoidea; Neritimorpha; species diversity; phylogenetic studies
