A new species of pachychilid freshwater gastropod, Sulcospira hunanensis sp. nov., is described from Hunan Province, China, based on morphological and molecular evidence. The new species is distinguished from its congeners by a combination of characters, including elongated shell with eight to nine whorls, spiral whorls with ribs, and stomach with outer and inner crescentic pads not connected to each other. Sulcospira hunanensis sp. nov. is the first confirmed report of this genus from Hunan…

A new species of Brotia from Yunnan, China (Caenogastropoda, Pachychilidae)
A new species of pachychilid freshwater gastropods, Brotia yunnanensis n. sp., is described from the Mengnong River in the Lancang (= Mekong) River drainage of Yunnan, Southern China. This species is
THE FRESHWATER SNAIL GENUS SULCOSPIRA TROSCHEL, 1857 FROM JAVA, WITH DESCRIPTION OF A NEW SPECIES FROM TASIKMALAYA, WEST JAVA, INDONESIA (MOLLUSCA: GASTROPODA: PACHYCHILIDAE)
TLDR
Shell, embryonic shell, and radula characters of the new species clearly differ from those in S. testudinaria, and this species has a rather restricted occurrence near Tasikmalaya in West Java.
Morphological redescription and neotype designation of Sulcospira paludiformis (Yen, 1939) from Hainan, China
TLDR
The anatomy shows that the species belongs to the genus Sulcospira Troschel, 1858 (family Pachychilidae) and the morphology shows that it is a neotype of S. paludiformis, described by Yen in 1939.
TOWARD A SYSTEMATIC REVISION OF THE SOUTHEAST ASIAN FRESHWATER GASTROPOD BROTIA H. ADAMS, 1866 (CERITHIOIDEA: PACHYCHILIDAE): AN ACCOUNT OF SPECIES FROM AROUND THE SOUTH CHINA SEA
TLDR
A detailed characterization of Brotia sensu lato is provided and, as a basis for a taxonomic revision, comparative conchological, anatomical, and biogeographical data for the most crucial constituent species including their synonymies are provided.
Fallen into oblivion-the systematic affinities of the enigmatic Sulcospira Troschel, 1858 (Cerithioidea: Pachychilidae), a genus of viviparous freshwater gastropods from Java
TLDR
The taxonomic history of the genus Sulcospira is recapitulate and the properties of another allegedly related species from Java, S. martini, are compared to show that these two viviparous species exhibit different protoconch morphologies, which are indicative of reproductive strategies distinct from other pachychilids.
Phylogeny and systematics of the Pachychilidae of mainland South-East Asia - novel insights from morphology and mitochondrial DNA (Mollusca, Caenogastropoda, Cerithioidea)
TLDR
Characteristic key features are a pallial oviduct with a seminal receptacle and an embryonic shell with a smooth, dome-like inflated apex and differences in the histology of the pallial Oviduct are not congruent with phylogenetic patterns as suggested by the mitochondrial trees.
The life history of Brotia hainanensis (Brot, 1872) (Gastropoda: Prosobranchia: Thiaridae) in a tropical forest stream
TLDR
This species shows two peaks of recruitment per annum, one in spring and a second in the latter part of summer, and it is suggested that the modification of the life cycle of B. hainanensis from the type more usually encountered in freshwater prosobranchs reflects that this is an r-selected species adapted to a habitat where high density-independent mortality occurs.
Refining molluscan characters: morphology, character coding and a phylogeny of the Caenogastropoda
TLDR
Character optimization revealed that the evolution of midgut structure is highly mosaic, cutting broadly across patterns of feeding, diet and foregut complexity, to a degree previously unappreciated, demonstrating that the gut is an unexploited resource for important and informative characters in higher order systematics of caenogastropods.
More than a gut feeling: utility of midgut anatomy in phylogeny of the Cerithioidea (Mollusca: Caenogastropoda)
The Cerithioidea is a large and diverse superfamily of marine, brackish, and freshwater snails. The complexity and variety of midgut features within this group have long been known, but have been
Creating the CIPRES Science Gateway for inference of large phylogenetic trees
TLDR
Development of the CIPRES Science Gateway is described, a web portal designed to provide researchers with transparent access to the fastest available community codes for inference of phylogenetic relationships, and implementation of these codes on scalable computational resources.
