The Ophthalmidiidae is one of three families in the miliolid superfamily Nubeculariacea, the others being the Fischerinidae and Nubeculariidae, characterized by chambers arranged planispirally or in various planes; proloculus and coiled tubular second chamber succeed by chambers one-half to one coil in length. Tests are calcarous, imperforate, without any arenaceous covering. The apurture is typically open but may be cribrate.  The middle Carboniferous ''Eosigmoilina'' is the probable ancestral form, most likely derived from ''Cornuspira'' or a ''Cornuspira'' like form.
