Cavolinidae
The family Cavolinidae includes species with highly modified shells and broad, wing like epipodia. The fragile shells are only occasionally found intact in beach drift and sand samples but fragments may be common. At least 18 species in 7 genera (Cavolinia, Clio, Creseis, Cuvierina, Diacavolinia, Diacria and Styliola) have been found in Hawaiian waters.

In addition to the species listed below, Hyalocylis striata (Rang, 1828b) has been recorded from the North Pacific near Hawaii based on the range maps in Pelagic Molluscs on the Marine Species Identification Portal.
