Nomenclature Originally introduced by Colosi (1915) as Runcinidea, a "section" [above family level] of Tectibranchia containing the family Runcinidae only. Spelling and rank emended by Colosi (1918: 86) to a "subsection" Runcinida, of equal rank to Thecosomata, containing the family Runcinidae only; by Burn (1963: 9) to suborder Runcinacea, as a substitute name for Peltacea; ranked by Odhner (in Franc, 1968: 841) as order; spelling emended by Golikov & Starobogatov (1989: 68) to order Runciniformes. The name is here listed as reinstated by Malaquias et al. (2009).
