Oxynoidae

The family Oxynoidae includes species with thin, bulloid shells that cannot contain the entire animal. The shell has a broad aperture, in contrast to the Cylindrobullidae, and the parapodia often cover it in living animals. The parapodia may be undivided or bi-lobed. There are at least two species known from Hawaii in two genera (Lobiger and Oxynoe).
