Crawling through time: Transition of snails to slugs dating back to the Paleozoic, based on mitochondrial phylogenomics.
Sea slugs (Gastropoda: Opisthobranchia) are characterized by extensive morphological homoplasy. In particular, reduced or absent shells are predominant throughout the group. This trend towards shell… Expand
Coral Reef Animals of the Indo-Pacific: Animal Life from Africa to Hawaii Exclusive of the Vertebrates
A Tale That Morphology Fails to Tell: A Molecular Phylogeny of Aeolidiidae (Aeolidida, Nudibranchia, Gastropoda)
Aeolidida is one of the largest clades of nudibranchs with at least 560 known species. However, its systematics has not been studied in a comprehensive manner. Phylogenetic analyses of larger clades… Expand
Nudibranchs of Southern Africa: A Guide to Opisthobranch Molluscs of Southern Africa
- T. Gosliner
- 1 August 1987
Southern Africa, whose east coast originates in tropical waters and whose west coast is cooled by upwelling and the north-flowing Benguela current, may be expected to have a rich and complex benthic… Expand
A molecular phylogeny of the Cephalaspidea sensu lato (Gastropoda: Euthyneura): Architectibranchia redefined and Runcinacea reinstated
The monophyly and phylogenetic relationships of the Cephalaspidea sensu lato (sensu Burn and Thompson 1998 ) have been investigated by means of Bayesian, parsimony and distance analyses of nuclear… Expand
The first molecular phylogeny of cladobranchian opisthobranchs (Mollusca, Gastropoda, Nudibranchia).
The first molecular phylogeny is presented for the highly diverse, opisthobranch molluscan Cladobranchia. This study, the most comprehensive for Cladobranchia to date, used new sequences of two… Expand
Phylogeny of Hypselodoris (Nudibranchia: Chromodorididae) with a review of the monophyletic clade of Indo-Pacific species, including descriptions of twelve new species
Abstract This work provides an account of the systematics and phylogeny of Hypselodoris . Aspects of the morphology of 42 species are described and the systematic status of an additional 11 species… Expand
Anatomy of an Invasion: Systematics and Distribution of the Introduced Opisthobranch Snail, Haminoea japonica Pilsbry, 1895 (Gastropoda: Opisthobranchia: Haminoeidae)
Haminoea japonica Pilsbry, 1895 is documented from the Pacific coast of North America and from European waters in Italy and northwestern Spain. Haminoea japonica is a senior synonym of Haminoea… Expand
Origins and relationships of primitive members of the Opisthobranchia (Mollusca: Gastropoda)
- T. Gosliner
- 1 November 1981
An examination of possible prosobranch precursors of opisthobranchs and pulmonates suggests that archaeogastropods are poor candidates, as they lack the complex female glands which characterize all… Expand
Traditional Taxonomic Groupings Mask Evolutionary History: A Molecular Phylogeny and New Classification of the Chromodorid Nudibranchs
Chromodorid nudibranchs (16 genera, 300+ species) are beautiful, brightly colored sea slugs found primarily in tropical coral reef habitats and subtropical coastal waters. The chromodorids are the… Expand
