Aglajidae
The family Aglajidae includes elongate species with small internal shells. Most are nocturnal but brightly colored species such as Chelidonura hirundinina are diurnal. They are predators feeding on acoelomate flatworms, polychaete worms or other opisthobranchs. About 16 species are known from Hawaii in eight genera (Biuve, Chelidonura, Nakamigawaia, Niparaya, Odontoglaja, Philinopsis, Spinoaglaja, and Tubulophilinopsis).

Aglaja nuttallii Pilsbry, 1895 is probably not identifiable with modern material. (Kay, 1979).
