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 not well known. Thanks to several years spent exploring mangroves in the Indo-West Pacific (more than 260 stations), especially in South-East Asia, the diversity of mangrove gastropods can now be addressed through revisions following an integrative taxonomy approach (nomenclature, field observations… 
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 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.
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.
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.
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
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.


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 a new and highly-diverse genus of onchidiid slugs from the Coral Triangle (Gastropoda, Pulmonata, Onchidiidae)
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).
A new genus and a new species of onchidiid slugs from eastern Indonesia (Gastropoda: Euthyneura: Onchidiidae)
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.
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.
A revision of Peronina Plate, 1893 (Gastropoda : Euthyneura : Onchidiidae) based on mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequences, morphology and natural history
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.
Distribution of Onchidium damelii Semper (Gastropoda, Onchidiidae)
The pulmonate gastropod Onchidium damelii Semper has a widespread tropical Indo-Pacific intertidal distribution and shows habitat preference rather than a zonal (tidal pattern) distri bution within the mangroves; population density is associated with substrate particle size and organic content; and temperature relationships were investigated.
Anatomical Re-Description of the Terrestrial Onchidiid Slug Semperoncis montana (Plate, 1893)
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
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.
