Diversity and systematics of Haminoeidae gastropods (Heterobranchia: Cephalaspidea) in the tropical West Pacific Ocean: New data on the genera Aliculastrum, Atys, Diniatys and Liloa
(Magnolia Press, 2014)
Four genera of Haminoeidae gastropods inhabiting the tropical West Pacific (Aliculastrum, Atys, Diniatys, and Liloa) were studied based on the combined analyses of live animals, external morphology, anatomy and shells ...
A new phylogeny of the Cephalaspidea (Gastropoda: Heterobranchia) based on expanded taxon sampling and gene markers
The Cephalaspidea is a diverse marine clade of euthyneuran gastropods with many groups still known largely from shells or scant anatomical data. The definition of the group and the relationships between members has been ...
Speciation in the dark: Diversification and biogeography of the deep-sea gastropod genus Scaphander in the Atlantic Ocean
(John Wiley & Sons Inc, 2015-01-30)
Aim The aim of this work was to improve understanding about the mode, geography and tempo of diversification in deep-sea organisms, using a time-calibrated molecular phylogeny of the heterobranch gastropod genus ...
Diet preferences of the Aglajidae: a family of cephalaspidean gastropod predators on tropical and temperate shores
(Cambridge University Press, 2015)
Aglajidae is a family of tropical and temperate marine Cephalaspidea gastropod slugs regarded as active predators. In order to better understand their food habits and trophic interactions, we have studied the diet of all ...
The bubble snails (Gastropoda, Heterobranchia) of Mozambique: an overlooked biodiversity hotspot
This first account, dedicated to the shallow water marine heterobranch gastropods of Mozambique is presented with a focus on the clades Acteonoidea and Cephalaspidea. Specimens were obtained as a result of sporadic sampling ...
The mediterranean sea as a gateway for invasion of the red sea: The case of the indo-west pacific head-shield slug chelidonura fulvipunctata baba, 1938
The number of tropical species established in the Mediterranean Sea has risen at an unprecedented rate in the last 40–50 years, often entering the basin from the Red Sea and to a lesser extent by shipping or mariculture. ...
