Major adaptive radiation in neritopsine gastropods estimated from 28S rRNA sequences and fossil records
A well–supported phylogeny of the Neritopsina, a gastropod superorder archaic in origin, radiated ecologically and diverse in morphology, is reconstructed based on partial 28S rRNA sequences. TheExpand

Mystery of naticid predation history solved: Evidence from a “living fossil” species
Observations of living Cernina fluctuata (Sowerby), the sole extant species of the Mesozoic and Cenozoic prosobranch gastropod family Ampullospiridae, show that this species is an algal grazer and isExpand

Upper Cretaceous stable carbon isotope stratigraphy of terrestrial organic matter from Sakhalin, Russian Far East: A proxy for the isotopic composition of paleoatmospheric CO2
Abstract Time-stratigraphic patterns of stable carbon isotopic ratios recorded in terrestrial organic matter from Cenomanian–Maastrichtian successions for the Russian Far East can be correlated toExpand

Genetic exchange between anchialine cave populations by means of larval dispersal: the case of a new gastropod species Neritilia cavernicola
Despite being limited to caves, many anchialine taxa have disjunct insular distributions, which raises questions about their origins and colonization history. This study deals with the new gastropodExpand

Alleged mosasaur bite marks on Late Cretaceous ammonites are limpet (patellogastropod) home scars
New data contradict the mosasaur-bite hypothesis for the origin of holes seen in Placenticeras ammonites from the Late Cretaceous Pierre Shale and Bearpaw Formation of the western interior of NorthExpand

New look at ammonoid taphonomy, based on field experiments with modern chambered nautilus
Field experiments with Nautilus pompilius in the Philippines have uncovered two previously unknown postmortem phenomena: (1) waterlogging of the phragmocone does not occur until the mantle tissueExpand

Anatomy and systematics of the submarine-cave gastropod Pisulina (Neritopsina: Neritiliidae)
The soft parts and radula of Pisulina adamsiana and Pisulina maxima (Gastropoda: Neritopsina) are described for the first time on the basis of specimens collected alive from nine submarine caves ofExpand
