Abstract A total of 11 species and 1 subspecies of Alycaeus were recognised in Peninsular Malaysia prior to this study. However, these taxonomic descriptions of Alycaeus taxa were based on limited numbers of examined materials, where a whole spectrum of morphological variations were not accounted for and diagnoses were often provided without sufficient comparison between congeners from across the peninsula. We reviewed Peninsular Malaysian Alycaeus through the examination of 5137 specimens in… 

Genus-level revision of the Alycaeidae (Gastropoda, Cyclophoroidea), with an annotated species catalogue

This revision of the Alycaeidae made three main achievements: the Dicharax species were identified based on the absence of spiral striation on the entire shell; the Metalycaeus species were identifybased on the spiral striations of the protoconch; and Stomacosmethis was separated from Alycaeus based onThe extremely short sutural tube.

A review of the Alycaeidae of the Philippines with descriptions of new species and subspecies (Gastropoda: Caenogastropoda: Cyclophoroidea)

The family Alycaeidae of the Philippines is revised based on the collections of the Senckenberg Museum and the Florida Museum of Natural History, and one new species and a subspecies of Chamalycaeus are described from Palawan.

This is the first detailed systematic revision of an Afrotropical cyclophorid group to include morphological and molecular data and complements research on other taxa of low-vagility forest-dwelling habitat specialists by providing comparative distribution data for an independent, widespread group.

The neglected operculum: a revision of the opercular characters in river snails (Caenogastropoda: Viviparidae)

Based on a morphological study of the opercula of 38 species of 25 viviparid genera, 16 newly defined opercular characters are shown to be useful for genus and species identification.

The operculate micro land snail genus Dicharax Kobelt & Möllendorff, 1900 (Caenogastropoda, Alycaeidae) in Thailand, with description of new species

Most important characters to distinguish Dicharax species are the general shell shape and relative lengths of teleoconch regions, whereas the spiral striation of R1, the shape of swelling of R3, the outer peristome crenulation and protrusion, and the exterior opercular sculpture show large intraspecific variability.
