ABSTRACT The taxonomy of the Onchidiidae has remained extremely confusing for decades. As part of an on-going systematic revision of the entire family, a new genus, Melayonchis Dayrat and Goulding gen. nov., and four new species (Melayonchis eloisae Dayrat sp. nov., Melayonchis siongkiati Dayrat and Goulding sp. nov., Melayonchis annae Dayrat sp. nov., and Melayonchis aileenae Dayrat and Goulding sp. nov.) are described. Species are delineated using an integrative approach, based on… 
A new species and new records of Onchidium slugs (Gastropoda, Euthyneura, Pulmonata, Onchidiidae) in South-East Asia
TLDR
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 a new species of onchidiid slugs from eastern Indonesia (Gastropoda: Euthyneura: Onchidiidae)
TLDR
A new genus is described here for a new species, Alionchis jailoloensis Goulding & Dayrat, new species which is highly distinct from all other onchidiids, which is endemic to Halmahera, eastern Indonesia.
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)
TLDR
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.
Integrative taxonomy of a new and highly-diverse genus of onchidiid slugs from the Coral Triangle (Gastropoda, Pulmonata, Onchidiidae)
TLDR
Nine of the ten Wallaconchis species are found in the Coral Triangle (eastern Indonesia and the Philippines), with up to six species found on the island of Bohol (Philippines) and eight species overlapping in northern Sulawesi (Indonesia).
Description of a new Peronia species (Gastropoda: Eupulmonata: Onchidiidae) from Iran, Persian Gulf.
TLDR
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.
A revision of Peronina Plate, 1893 (Gastropoda : Euthyneura : Onchidiidae) based on mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequences, morphology and natural history
TLDR
Peronina species are described using an integrative approach (natural history, comparative anatomy and DNA sequences), and Mitochondrial COI and 16S sequences and nuclear ITS2 and 28S sequences are used to independently test species boundaries.
Systematic revision of the genus Peronia Fleming, 1822 (Gastropoda, Euthyneura, Pulmonata, Onchidiidae)
TLDR
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.
Distribution and Abundance of the Onchidiidae of the Coastal Mangroves of Selangor, Peninsular Malaysia
The Onchidiidae family is ideal for studying the biodiversity of marine invertebrate species from sea to wetland environments . However, biodiversity studies of Onchidiidae species are rare. This
A DNA barcode library for mangrove gastropods and crabs of Hong Kong and the Greater Bay Area reveals an unexpected faunal diversity associated with the intertidal forests of Southern China
TLDR
This study provides the first reference barcode library for mangrove-associated macrobenthic fauna in the Greater Bay Area and represents a reliable tool to management and conservation plans.

Integrative taxonomy of the genus Onchidium Buchannan, 1800 (Mollusca, Gastropoda, Pulmonata, Onchidiidae)
TLDR
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.
Taxonomic revision of the Onchidiidae (Mollusca: Gastropoda: Pulmonata) from the Tropical Eastern Pacific
TLDR
The data confirm previous results indicating that the highest rate of endemism in the TEP is found in the Galapagos, and the anatomy of valid species is described and compared to other onchidiids.
Review of the current knowledge of the systematics of Onchidiidae (Mollusca: Gastropoda: Pulmonata) with a checklist of nominal species
TLDR
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.
Phylogenetic relationships and evolution of pulmonate gastropods (Mollusca): new insights from increased taxon sampling.
TLDR
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.
Anatomical Re-Description of the Terrestrial Onchidiid Slug Semperoncis montana (Plate, 1893)
TLDR
The anatomy of Semperoncis montana, a terrestrial species that lives in high-elevation rain forests of the Philippines Islands, is redescribed based on 91 specimens representing ten populations and Ontogenetic changes in the shape of male organs are described and illustrated in detail, indicating that S. montana was described based on immature specimens of the later named Platevindex apoikistes.
Species diversity of Onchidiidae (Eupulmonata: Heterobranchia) on the mainland of China based on molecular data
TLDR
A phylogeny constructed using partial sequences of two mitochondrial genes and one nuclear ribosomal RNA gene from 32 samples comprising five genera showed that the taxa clustered in two main groups of six species, and it was clear that COI will be useful in discriminating onchidiid species-group taxa.
From sea to land and beyond – New insights into the evolution of euthyneuran Gastropoda (Mollusca)
TLDR
It can be proposed for the first time that invasion of freshwater by Pulmonata is a unique evolutionary event and has taken place directly from the marine environment via an aquatic pathway.
Review of the geographic distribution of Hoffmannola hansi (Gastropoda: Pulmonata) in the Mexican Pacific
Hoffmannola hansi (Mexican intertidal leather slug) is traditionally reported as an endemic species to theGulf of California, Mexico. However, its presence in the southern Mexican Pacific has been
Ten new complete mitochondrial genomes of pulmonates (Mollusca: Gastropoda) and their impact on phylogenetic relationships
TLDR
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.
Delimiting Species Using Single-Locus Data and the Generalized Mixed Yule Coalescent Approach: A Revised Method and Evaluation on Simulated Data Sets
TLDR
These findings support the robustness of GMYC as a tool for delimiting species when only single-locus information is available and argue that this might represent a fundamental limit due to the nature of evidence used to delimit species in this approach.
