Rangewide phylogeography of a terrestrial slug in Europe: evidence for Alpine refugia and rapid colonization after the Pleistocene glaciations
Full‐range phylogeography of Arion fuscus suggests the existence of an alternative refugial zone, situated north of the refugials areas currently recognized in most other taxa.
Molecular systematics of the endemic Leptaxini (Gastropoda: Pulmonata) on the Azores islands.

A general working strategy to deal with incomplete reference libraries in the DNA barcoding identification of species by imposing a distance threshold profitably reduces identification errors is proposed.

It is shown that multiple UPGMA and NJ trees cannot be neglected with molecular data based on allozyme distances or “binary” distances derived from random amplified polymorphic DNA, restriction fragments, DNA fingerprints, or general protein patterns, and observed that NTSYS, PHYLIP MVSP and MVSP87 have different efficiencies in finding ties.
Extreme mtDNA divergences in a terrestrial slug (Gastropoda, Pulmonata, Arionidae): accelerated evolution, allopatric divergence and secondary contact
The nuclear data suggest that this secondary contact resulted in hybridization between the allopatrically diverged groups, and it seems that, at least for two of the groups, the deep mtDNA divergence was only partially accompanied by the formation of reproductive isolation.
Higher phylogeny of frugivorous flies (Diptera, Tephritidae, Dacini): localised partition conflicts and a novel generic classification.
A survey of intestinal helminths of red foxes (Vulpes vulpes) in northern Belgium
The need to study the prevalence of intestinal helminths in regions that are recently colonised by red foxes since such studies may add to the authors' understanding of the emergence, the temporal spread and the persistence of zoonoses in Europe is emphasized.
Molecular and morphological data reveal cryptic taxonomic diversity in the terrestrial slug complex Arion subfuscus/fuscus (Mollusca, Pulmonata, Arionidae) in continental north‐west Europe

Morphological, morphological, allozyme and mitochondrial 16S rDNA sequence data have been jointly evaluated and gonad type proved to be a useful character for distinguishing the two species in north-west Europe.

There was a low interspecific sequence divergence in six species groups so that for 16 out of the 99 species, the use of COI barcodes as species identifier should be done with care, and it is illustrated how such reference databases can improve local reference databases for forensic entomologists.
