Abstract (in english)
   The new genus Barrandicella is proposed to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Joachim Barrande (1799-1883), with type species Archinacella ovata Barrande in Perner, 1903 from the Middle Ordovician (Darriwilian) of Bohemia. Barrandicella is interpreted as a gastropod (Mollusca) on the basis of a pair of well preserved muscle scars and associated tiny subsidiary scars located at the apex of the limpet shell. It lacks the dorsal band-like muscle scar characteristics of Acrinacella and related genera but can be placed together with these in a revised Superfamily Archinacelloidea. No apparent link is perceived between the Archinacelloidea and the Petellogastropoda, currently widely as the sister group of all other gastropods
