In this short report, higher taxonomic position of the suborder Jinonicellina Pokorný, 1978 is discussed. This suborder definitely does not belong to the subclasses Archaeogastropoda and Amphigastropoda. Its interpretation as a fossil group related to extant Monoplacophora (=Tryblidiida) is also improbable. In addition, there is no evidence that the suborder Jinonicellina belongs to the phylum Mollusca.
