A molecular phylogenetic framework for the Muricidae, a diverse family of carnivorous gastropods.
The phylogenetic relationships of 77 muricid species belonging to nine of the ten currently recognized subfamilies are presented, based on Bayesian inference and Maximum Likelihood analyses of partial sequences of three mitochondrial (12S, 16S and COI) and one nuclear (28S) genes. Expand
New species of Muricidae (Gastropoda) from the northeastern Atlantic and the Mediterranean Sea
Three species are here described as new in the genus Muricopsis, which is reported from West Turkey and Cyprus, in the eastern Mediterranean Sea. Expand
Molecular data reveal cryptic lineages within the northeastern Atlantic and Mediterranean small mussel drills of the Ocinebrina edwardsii complex (Mollusca: Gastropoda: Muricidae)
A framework is proposed for the revision of the Ocinebrina edwardsii species complex, suggesting a geographical pattern for the diversification of this group in the studied area and the geographical structure proposed by the mitochondrial markers is similar to that found in other marine invertebrates.

The genus Chicoreus and related genera (Gastropoda: Muricidae) in the Indo-West Pacific
The genus Chicoreus and related genera (Gastropoda: Muricidae) in the Indo-West Pacific are recognized as new genera of Gastropoda. Expand
New data on recently described Chilean trophonines (Gastropoda: Muricidae), description of a new species and notes of their occurrence at a cold seep site
Additional specimens of three newly described Chilean species of Trophon s.l. Monfort, 1810 have been dredged recently off south-central Chile, and we here list the new data and illustrate theExpand
Description of two new species of Chicoreus (Siratus) (Gastropoda, Muricidae) from Honduras and Nicaragua
Two new species of Chicoreus (Siratus) are described from Honduras and East Nicaragua and are compared to C. articulatus (Reeve, 1845), C. beaui (Fischer & Bemardi, 1857), and C. (S) caudacurta Houart, 1999. Expand
Ontogenetic changes of the spiral cords as keys innovation of the muricid sculptural patterns: the example of the Muricopsis–Murexsul lineages (Gastropoda: Muricidae: Muricopsinae)
The results suggest that the phase of sculptural increase yielding the primitive pattern is followed by a selective phase, preserving or increasing the relief of the probable most functional cords. Expand
