Genus Euglypha Dujardin, 1841

 

Diagnosis: test elongate ovoid or pyriform, composed of overlapping plates, usually arranged in longitudinal rows. Aperture always with denticulate mouth plates.

 

Remarks: This is a simplified key with only some main types. Euglypha is a large and common genus with numerous species; many species are hard to identify and may be part of species complexes. Recently a new genus Scutiglypha has been created, but molecular data doesn't support this genus.
