Egila is a genus of small sea snails, marine gastropod mollusks in the family Pyramidellidae, the pyrams and their allies.[2]

This genus was previously placed in the tribe Chrysallidini of the family Odostomiidae. It has both extant and fossil (Cenozoic) members.

Life habits

Little is known about the biology of the members of this genus. As is true of most members of the Pyramidellidae sensu lato, they are most likely to be ectoparasites.
