Fenestellidae King, 1849

This group can be considered as one family encompassing a wide range of related genera. However, the Polyporidae may instead be considered as a separate family. Alternatively, the Fenestellidae can be divided into the subfamilies Fenestellinae and Polyporinae. This third version is used in the listing below, although the file structure used for these web pages has not been designed to reflect subfamily levels of taxonomy.
