This annotated catalogue of Recent and fossil supraspecific names of the molluscan class Scaphopoda contains 15 class- and ordinal-level names, 33 family-level names, 114 genus-group names, and 12 non-scaphopod names erroneously assigned to this class. For the suprageneric names, this catalogue provides their original rank, their current systematic status and, if applicable, their type genus. For the genus-group names, this catalogue provides the type species, mode of designation, systematic position, and the listing of the Recent species. Complete bibliographic references are provided for all supraspecific names. The current validity of each nominal taxon is assessed based upon the literature, with junior synonyms cross-referenced.
