Taxonomic note: The phylogenetic analyses performed by Cella et al. (2016) revealed that the traditional Tergipedidae family is polyphyletic and belongs to a larger monophyletic clade including members of the traditional families Eubranchidae, Fionidae and Calmidae; this was an unexpected result, since the validity of these taxa and their distinctness from the Tergipedidae was never questioned before. They proposed to join the families Tergipedidae, Eubranchidae, Calmidae and Fionidae under the name of Fionidae.
- Eubranchus, from Greek, means “true gills”.
- Prietoi, dedicated to the Counselor of Trade, Tourism and Fisheries of the Regional Council of Asturias (Spain), Mr. Alfredo Prieto Valiente, in recognition of his efforts for the creation of CRINAS (Center for Aquatic Research of Asturias).
