Anatomy, Biology and Systematics of Campanile symbolicum with Reference to Adaptive Radiation of the Cerithiacea (Gastropoda: Prosobranchia)

  title={Anatomy, Biology and Systematics of Campanile symbolicum with Reference to Adaptive Radiation of the Cerithiacea (Gastropoda: Prosobranchia)},
  author={Richard S. Houbrick},
Campanile symbolicum Iredale is the sole survivor of a long lineage of large mesogastropods in the family Campanilidae. The family was well represented in the Tethys Sea and undenwent a widespread adaptive radiation in the early Tertiary. Several of the fossil species are among the largest known gastropods. The living relict is confined to southwestern Australia where it is common in shallow, subtidal, sandy habitats. It is a herbivore with a generalized taenioglossate radula and thick jaws…

Anatomy of Afropomus balanoideus (Mollusca, Gastropoda, Ampullariidae) and its implications for phylogeny and ecology

The morphological structures show that Afropomus balanoideus is adapted to an amphibious mode of life and to aestivation, as has been shown for other species of Ampullariidae.

Anatomy of Diastoma melanioides (Reeve, 1849) with Remarks on the Systematic Position of the Family Diastomatidae (Prosobranchia: Gastropoda)

Study of the anatomy shows that this species has open palliai gonoducts, and aphallic males, which establishes it in the superfamily Cerithiacea, which indicates that Diastoma should be given familial status.

Phylogeny of the gastropod superfamily Cerithioidea using morphology and molecules

The combination of diverse data sources (morphology, 16S and 28S sequences) and inclusion of unconserved regions of the alignments improved the recovery of monophyletic families, and a consensus is beginning to emerge in the recognition of three main assemblages.

Revision of higher taxa in genus Cerithidea lMesogastropodac Potamidiaer based on comparative morphology and biological data

An account of the reproduction, spawn, development and growth of this species along with ecological observations are presented and compared with other Cerithidea taxa in order to summarize what is known of the biology of the genus, to develop a holistic, less arbitrary classification, and to formulate systematic definitions of the subgenera comprising it.

Functional anatomy of the reproductive system of the caenogastropod of genus Cleopatra, (Troschel, 1857), Family Paludomidae, in Qena Province, Egypt

The Paludomidae Stoliczka, 1868 is currently understood as representing taxa with a general distribution including most of tropical sub-Saharan Africa and Madagascar as well as South and Southeast

New species, anatomy, and systematic position of the hydrothermal vent and hydrocarbon seep gastropod family Provannidae fam.n. (Caenogastropoda)

The anatomy of the hydrothermal vent gastropod Provanna is described. It is shown to be a primitive neotaenioglossan with mainly plesiomorphic features in all systems, including open pallial

More than a gut feeling: utility of midgut anatomy in phylogeny of the Cerithioidea (Mollusca: Caenogastropoda)

The Cerithioidea is a large and diverse superfamily of marine, brackish, and freshwater snails. The complexity and variety of midgut features within this group have long been known, but have been

Using transmission electron microscopy, paraspermatozoa of representative species of the families Cerithiidae, Potamididae, Planaxidae, Dialidae and the genusAustralaba (family position uncertain)


Soft-body characters do not contradict, and may even support, the counterintuitive sister-group relationship with shell-less, wormshaped Rhodopemorpha, and structural diversity among minute lower Heterobranchia is highlighted.

The Vetigastropoda and the systematics of streptoneurous Gastropoda (Mollusca)

The status of the Vetigastropoda, created 1980 to unite zeugobranch and trochoid archaeo-gastropods, is reconsidered and confirmed in the light of recent investigations, and an examination of the relationships establishes the archaeogastropod nature of the Architaenioglossa.
