Mitogenomics of Vetigastropoda: insights into the evolution of pallial symmetry
The nucleotide sequences of the complete or nearly complete mitochondrial (mt) genomes of seven vetigastropods were determined: Angaria neglecta (Angarioidea), Phasianella solida (Phasianelloidea),Expand
New patellogastropod mitogenomes help counteracting long-branch attraction in the deep phylogeny of gastropod mollusks.
Long-branch attraction (LBA) is a well-known artifact in phylogenetic reconstruction. Sparse taxon sampling and extreme heterogeneity of evolutionary rates among lineages generate propitiousExpand
Phylogenetic relationships among superfamilies of Neritimorpha (Mollusca: Gastropoda).
Despite the extraordinary morphological and ecological diversity of Neritimorpha, few studies have focused on the phylogenetic relationships of this lineage of gastropods, which includes four extantExpand
Revisiting the phylogeny of Cephalopoda using complete mitochondrial genomes
This work was supported by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation CGL2013-45211-C2-2-P to R.Z. and BES-2011-051469 to J.E.U.
Denser mitogenomic sampling improves resolution of the phylogeny of the superfamily Trochoidea (Gastropoda: Vetigastropoda)
The great morphological and ecological diversity within the superfamily Trochoidea s. l. has in the past hindered the reconstruction of a robust phylogeny for the group based on morphology. Moreover,Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of the conoidean snails (Gastropoda: Caenogastropoda) based on mitochondrial genomes.
With more than 5,000 species, Conoidea is one of the most diversified superfamilies of Gastropoda. Recently, the family-level classification of these venomous predator snails has undergoneExpand
Conidae phylogenomics and evolution
Understanding the relative role of different evolutionary processes leading to the extraordinary morphological, ecological and species diversity of cone snails requires a robust phylogeny, which thusExpand
A mitogenomic phylogeny of chitons (Mollusca: Polyplacophora)
Background Polyplacophora, or chitons, have long fascinated malacologists for their distinct and rather conserved morphology and lifestyle compared to other mollusk classes. However, key aspects ofExpand
Beyond Conus: Phylogenetic relationships of Conidae based on complete mitochondrial genomes.
Understanding how the extraordinary taxonomic and ecological diversity of cone snails (Caenogastropoda: Conidae) evolved requires a statistically robust phylogenetic framework, which thus far is notExpand
Phylogenetic relationships of Mediterranean and North-East Atlantic Cantharidinae and notes on Stomatellinae (Vetigastropoda: Trochidae).
The subfamily Cantharidinae Gray, 1857 (Trochoidea: Trochidae) includes 23 recognized genera and over 200 known living species. These marine top shell snails are microphagous grazers that generallyExpand
