It is shown that Late Quaternary North Atlantic temperature and dustiness in Greenland and Europe were largely synchronous and suggested that this coupling was driven via precipitation changes and large-scale atmospheric circulation, and proposed that European dust emissions were modulated by dominant phases of the North Atlantic Oscillation.

Revision of the genus Pseudopomatias and its relatives (Gastropoda: Cyclophoroidea: Pupinidae).
Anatomical information of P. eos and DNA sequence data of two Pseudopomatias species indicate that the genus is a member of the family Pupinidae, and the other pre-existing hypothesis, namely that Pseudocephalus is a members of the Cochlostomatidae, is not supported by the results.
Seven new hypselostomatid species from China, including some of the world’s smallest land snails (Gastropoda, Pulmonata, Orthurethra)
Abstract Seven new species of Hypselostomatidae are described from the Chinese province Guangxi: Angustopila dominikae Páll-Gergely & Hunyadi, sp. n., Angustopila fabella Páll-Gergely & Hunyadi, sp.…
An integrative taxonomic approach to infer the systematic position of Chalepotaxis Ancey, 1887 (Gastropoda: Stylommatophora: Helicarionidae)
DNA markers corroborate this assignment and unequivocally remove the species from the Camaenidae (=Bradybaenidae) and Ariophantidae, where it had previously been placed.
AMS 14C and OSL/IRSL dating of the Dunaszekcső loess sequence (Hungary): chronology for 20 to 150 ka and implications for establishing reliable age–depth models for the last 40 ka
Should we describe genera without molecular phylogenies?

The unsatisfactory review process of taxonomic works is often exacerbated by the biases of reviewers and their inobservance of valuable historic convention in light of the current wave of molecular phylogenies.
Groping through the black box of variability: An integrative taxonomic and nomenclatural re-evaluation of Zospeum isselianum Pollonera, 1887 and allied species using new imaging technology (Nano-CT,…
After considering the severely degraded syntype material of Zospeum isselianum, the taxonomic re-description and proposed aneotype for this species are provided and new diagnostic information is revealed regarding the columella of ZOSpeum amelianum and allied species.

The present species copulates by shell-mounting like other clausiliids, which was mistakenly described differently in an earlier paper.
