 Maxwell, P.A. 1988. p.89 [ too little is known about the type species of Leionucula ( L. albensis (Orbigny, 1844) by original designation), and other species of Leionucula to make any meaningful comparison with other nuculids. Thus, Ennucula has been retained as the valid name until further information is available for the taxon Leionucula. ]  Alternate taxonomic arrangement
