  journal={Raffles Bulletin of Zoology},
The taxonomy of the Onchidiidae is currently being revised based on extensive sampling, molecular data, and examination of all type specimens available. A new genus, Alionchis Goulding & Dayrat, new genus is described here for a new species, Alionchis jailoloensis Goulding & Dayrat, new species, which is highly distinct from all other onchidiids. Alionchis jailoloensis lives on the mud in mangrove forests and can be easily identified in the field by its large eye tentacles and a hyponotum with…

A new species and new records of Onchidium slugs (Gastropoda, Euthyneura, Pulmonata, Onchidiidae) in South-East Asia
A new species of Onchidium melakense is described, a rare species with only nine individuals found at three mangrove sites in the Andaman Islands and the Strait of Malacca, which is delineated based on mitochondrial (COI and 16S) and nuclear (ITS2 and 28S) DNA sequences as well as comparative anatomy.
A new genus and three new species of mangrove slugs from the Indo-West Pacific (Mollusca: Gastropoda: Euthyneura: Onchidiidae)
Mangroves of the Indo-West Pacific have remained poorly explored, so even the diversity of the onchidiid slugs, which are some of the most abundant animals in mangroves of the Indo-West Pacific, is
A new genus of air-breathing marine slugs from South-East Asia (Gastropoda, Pulmonata, Onchidiidae)
The present contribution shows again that species delineation is greatly enhanced by considering comparative anatomy and nuclear DNA sequences in addition to mitochondrial DNA sequences, and that thorough taxonomic revisions are the best and most efficient path to accurate biodiversity knowledge.
Description of a new Peronia species (Gastropoda: Eupulmonata: Onchidiidae) from Iran, Persian Gulf.
Results on a new species of eupulmonate slug found in the Persian Gulf, a subtropical region with harsh conditions such as elevated salinity and high temperature compared to the Indian Ocean, are presented.
Systematic revision of the genus Peronia Fleming, 1822 (Gastropoda, Euthyneura, Pulmonata, Onchidiidae)
The taxonomy of the onchidiid slugs with dorsal gills is revised for the first time based on a large collection of fresh material from the entire Indo-West Pacific, from South Africa to Hawaii, to better establish species distributions.

A new genus and four new species of onchidiid slugs from South-East Asia (Mollusca: Gastropoda: Pulmonata: Onchidiidae)
A new genus, Melayonchis Dayrat and Goulding gen. nov., and four new species are described, based on morphological characters and DNA sequences of the Onchidiidae, which ranges from the Andaman Sea to the South China Sea through the Strait of Malacca.
Integrative taxonomy of the genus Onchidium Buchannan, 1800 (Mollusca, Gastropoda, Pulmonata, Onchidiidae)
The genus Onchidium is redefined here as a clade including only three species which are strongly supported by both morphological and molecular data, and all three species are re-described here for the first time.
Review of the current knowledge of the systematics of Onchidiidae (Mollusca: Gastropoda: Pulmonata) with a checklist of nominal species
A checklist of all 143 species names available in Onchidiidae is provided, as a first step towards a systematic revision of systematics of this taxon.
Global diversification of mangrove fauna: a molecular phylogeny of Littoraria (Gastropoda: Littorinidae).
The genus Littoraria is document its global evolutionary radiation and compare biogeographic patterns with those of mangrove plants, based on phylogenetic and fossil evidence, and infer that speciation events are mainly of Miocene or older age, and that diversification has not been driven by depletion ofMangrove habitats during recent glacial intervals.
Phylogenetic relationships and evolution of pulmonate gastropods (Mollusca): new insights from increased taxon sampling.
Phylogenetic relationships among higher clades of pulmonate gastropods are reconstructed based on a data set including one nuclear marker and two mitochondrial markers for a total of 96 species, with a special emphasis on sampling the Ellobiidae, Onchidiidae, and Veronicellidae.
Embryology of the New Zealand Onchidiidae and its Bearing on the Classification of the Group
It is rather surprising to find, in a group that could throw some light on the origin of Opisthobranchs and Pulmonates, that the embryology of only one species, Onchidella celtica Forbes and Hanley, has been examined.
Ten new complete mitochondrial genomes of pulmonates (Mollusca: Gastropoda) and their impact on phylogenetic relationships
Despite recent efforts for increasing the taxon sampling in euthyneuran (opisthobranchs and pulmonates) molecular phylogenies, several of the deeper nodes are still uncertain, because of low support values as well as some incongruence between analyses based on complete mitochondrial genomes and those based on individual genes.
Studies in the Functional Morphology and Embryology of Onchidella Celtica (Forbes and Hanley) and their Bearing on its Relationships
Feeding experiments suggest that the digestive cells of the gland absorb only fluid, and the distensible crop and stomach afford ample storage space for the food.

The famous naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace collected natural history specimens throughout Southeast Asia from 1854–1862. One of the least known of the players in Wallace’s story is his Malay
