based on the retention of ancestral characters in its radular apparatus (docoglossate radula), the order Patellogastropoda (= Docoglossa) - including the Acmaeidae and Patellidae - is considered to be the earliest offshoot of Gastropoda (Haszprunar, 1988; McLean, 1990).
In his analysis of gastropod phylogeny, Haszprunar (1988) contended, on the basis of characters such as gill structure, external fertilization with aquasperm, and symmetrical shell form, that docoglossan limpets (including Patellidae) are the basal offshoot of the ancestral gastropod.
