Hartley, J.P. 1981: JMBAUK 61:133-149, determined that Acesta was
preoccupied in the Mollusca and renamed the genus Acmira.
Geoff Read has correctly addressed your question on the composition of
the Oeonidae. As much as I like the name Arabellidae, that family name
must be suppressed in favor of Oenonidae. Orensanz (1990) has revised
this group. As Geoff notes, the taxonomic history is nicely reviewed
by Brigitte Hilbig in the vol. of the Tax. Atlas.
Have a good day,
