The term derives from the Latin buccina, -ae = trumpet, hunting horn. Currently in the cold and tropical seas are known more than 400.
Thirty of these species are widespread in the Mediterranean sea. Buccinids are predators and generally feeds bivalves after having pierced their shell.
Some genera belonging to this family are known to have left-handed shells such as the Neptunea.
