A new species of bathymodioline mussel (Mollusca, Bivalvia, Mytilidae) from Mauritania (West Africa), with comments on the genus Bathymodiolus Kenk & Wilson, 1985

  author={Rudo von Cosel},
Bathymodiolus mauritanicus n. sp. est decrite et placee dans le contexte du genre Bathymodiolus Kenk & Wilson, 1985. L'espece a ete recoltee par un chalutier commercial au large du Banc d'Arguin, nord de la Mauritanie, a une profondeur d'environ 1 000 m. Aucun suintement froid ou d'hydrocarbure n'a ete detecte dans cette region, mais la recolte reguliere d'autres mollusques habitant ce type d'environnement dans le meme endroit suggere l'existence de telles sources. L'espece nouvelle appartient…

Caractérisation et expression des gènes de métallothionéines chez deux modioles hydrothermales : Bathymodiolus thermophilus et Bathymodiolus azoricus

Pour comprendre ces phenomenes adaptatifs, nous avonschoisi d'etudier les metallothioneines qui sont de petites proteines ubiquistes impliquees dans lemetabolisme des metaux et dont l'induction par les metaux est etablie chez de nombreuses especes.

New fossil mussels (Bivalvia: Mytilidae) from Miocene hydrocarbon seep deposits, North Island, New Zealand, with general remarks on vent and seep mussels

Both new species from Miocene-age hydrocarbon seep carbonates of North Island, New Zealand are described, and it is suggested that an evolutionary trend toward gigantism occurred in vent and seep mussels since the first known fossil species of the group appeared in the Middle Eocene.

Chemosymbiotic bivalves from Miocene methane-seep carbonates in Italy

The first thyasirid from a Neogene deep-water seep deposit in Italy and the first fossil occurrence of this genus is reported, and an unusual mytilid with a commarginally ribbed surface is introduced, which might be the first non-bathymodiolin mytilids obligate to the seep environment.


A new species and genus from water depths of 480-500 m on the Macauley Caldera, Kermadec Ridge, is the first record of a member of the chemoautotrophic bivalve family Lucinidae from an active hydrothermalvent.

Dispersal and Differentiation of Deep-Sea Mussels of the Genus Bathymodiolus (Mytilidae, Bathymodiolinae)

The mitochondrial ND4 gene was sequenced to elucidate the evolutionary processes of Bathymodiolus mussels and mytilid relatives, indicating an evolutionary transition from shallow to deep sea via sunken wood and whale carcasses.

New Record of “Bathymodiolus” Mauritanicus Cosel 2002 from the Gulf of Cadiz (NE Atlantic) Mud Volcanoes

The results indicate that the GOC mussels are conspecific with “Bathymodiolus” mauritanicus Cosel (2002), described from West Africa margin, and support a previous hypothesis that ‘B.’ muritanicus is an amphi-Atlantic species.

Evolutionary relationships within the "Bathymodiolus" childressi group

This study utilizes a commercially available DNA extraction kit to obtain high-quality DNA from two mussel shells collected eight years ago at the Edison Seamount near Papua New Guinea, and analysis of nuclear and mitochondrial DNA sequences supports previous conclusions that deep-sea mussels presently subsumed within the genus Bathymodiolus comprise a paraphyletic assemblage.



Vesicomyidae (Mollusca: Bivalvia) of the genera Vesicomya, Waisiuconcha, Isorropodon and Callogonia in the eastern Atlantic and the Mediterranean

Five new species of Vesicomyidae are described and detailed data on anatomy of the genus Isorropodon is presented for the tirst time and it is shown to be a valid taxon.

A new genus and five new species of mussels lBivalviac Mytilidaer from deep-sea sulfideshydrocarbon seeps in the Gulf of Mexico

Five new species of modioliform mussels in the family Mytilidae are described from material collected at sulfide/hydrocarbon seeps in the Gulf of Mexico. New definitive taxa, placed in the subfamily

Evolutionary relationships among deep-sea mytilids (Bivalvia: Mytilidae) from hydrothermal vents and cold-water methane/sulfide seeps

A protein electrophoretic survey of mytilids inhabiting deep-sea hydrothermal vents and cold-water methane/sulfide seeps revealed electromorph patterns diagnostic of 10 distinct species, suggesting a relatively ancient common ancestor for the group.

Seep faunas and other indicators of methane‐rich dewatering on New Zealand convergent margins

Abstract Fluid seeps, many marked by rich, distinctive, chemosynthetic faunas living independently of the Earth's photosynthesis‐based food chain, are indicators of sedimentological and tectonic
