The relationship between three genera considered basal in the Chromodorididae (Cadlina, Tyrinna, Cadlinella) has not yet been resolved by traditional morphological means. Here we examined the sperm ultrastructure of Tyrinna nobilis, Tyrinna evelinae, Cadlina flavomaculata and Cadlina cf. nigrobranchiata, with the expectation of finding phylogenetically informative characters. No Tyrinna or Cadlina species showed sperm similarities to Cadlinella. Both Cadlina species and Tyrinna nobilis (but not… Expand

Sperm ultrastructure of Microhedyle remanei, an interstitial acochlidian gastropod with dermal fertilization
TLDR
Transmission electron microscopy shows the spermatozoa of M. remanei sharing many plesiomorphic features with opisthobranch gastropods, such as having an apical spiral nucleus with a basal invagination filled with a bell-shaped centriolar derivative. Expand
Ultrastructure and potential taxonomic importance of euspermatozoa and paraspermatozoa in the volutid gastropods Zidona dufresnei and Provocator mirabilis (Caenogastropoda, Mollusca)
TLDR
The ultrastructure of mature spermatozoa is investigated for the first time in the Volutidae and results obtained for P. mirabilis from testis material are essentially as observed in Z. dufresnei, although the euspermatozoan acrosome still has to achieve its compressed transverse profile. Expand
MICROANATOMY OF SHELLED KOLOONELLA CF. MINUTISSIMA (LASERON, 1951) (GASTROPODA: 'LOWER' HETEROBRANCHIA: MURCHISONELLIDAE) DOES NOT CONTRADICT A SISTER-GROUP RELATIONSHIP WITH ENIGMATIC RHODOPEMORPHA SLUGS
TLDR
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. Expand
Polyphyly across oceans: a molecular phylogeny of the Chromodorididae (Mollusca, Nudibranchia)
TLDR
Evidence of paraphyly or polyphyly in all of the widespread genera examined (Hypselodoris, Mexichromis, Chromodoris and Glossodoris) was recovered, and controversy surrounding the placement of the three most basal genera was only partially resolved. Expand
Insights from enigmatic clades - comparative microanatomy and evolution of the Heterobranchia (Mollusca, Gastropoda)
TLDR
An integrative taxonomic workfl ow for delimiting potentially cryptic and elusive mesopsammic species, that also may be of use for other rare(ly) sampled invertebrates is presented. Expand

COMPARATIVE SPERM ULTRASTRUCTURE IN FIVE GENERA OF THE NUDIBRANCH FAMILY CHROMODORIDIDAE (GASTROPODA: OPISTHOBRANCHIA).
TLDR
Substantial and potentially taxonomically informative differences were also observed between genera in the morphology of the nucleus, the neck region of the mid-piece, and also the terminal glycogen piece. Expand
Is Cadlinella ornatissima a chromodorid? Sperm ultrastructure in an enigmatic nudibranch (Opisthobranchia, Mollusca)
TLDR
The peculiar nature of the sperm differences, in comparison with other investigated nudibranchs, suggest that Cadlinella is not easily linked to either the Cadlinidae or Chromodorididae, and should be considered incertae sedis. Expand
Sperm ultrastructure of the Actinocyclidae (Mollusca, Nudibranchia) and homology of the terminal region of nudibranch sperm
TLDR
Investigations revealed ultrastructural synapomorphies for the actinocyclidid nudibranchs Actinocyclus verrucosus, Hallaxa iju and HallaxA indecora based on the morphology of the terminal region of the spermatozoon, which support the proposed sister group relationship between the ActInocyclidae and Chromodorididae.

Ultrastructure and Phylogenetic Significance of Notaspidean Spermatozoa (Mollusca, Gastropoda, Opisthobranchia)
TLDR
Spermatozoal structure supports a close relationship between the genera Berthellina, Berthella and Pleurobranchus, while Umbraculum maintains an isolated, specialized position within the Notaspidea. Expand

Revision of the nudibranch gastropod genus Tyrinna Bergh, 1898 (Doridoidea: Chromodorididae)
TLDR
The rediscovered holotype of Doris delicata Abraham, 1877 from Chile is shown to belong to the genus Tyrinna Bergh, 1898, and retention of the commonly used name T. nobilis instead of its replacement by the senior but disregarded synonym T. delicata is proposed. Expand

TLDR
A large suite of characters including features of the external shape, mantle glands, gills, foregut, jaw-plates, radula and reproductive system are used to define the genera. Expand
Ultrastructure of spermatozoa in four species of Alvinellidae (Annelida: Polychaeta)
TLDR
The aim of this study was to examine specific characters of the spermathecae and spermatozoa, and eventual ultrastructural similarities between closely related species and sub-species. Expand

TLDR
An account of the systematics and phylogeny of Hypselodoris is provided, which largely refute the generality of the hypothesis of Springer (1982), that Pacific Plate and Australasian Plate endemic sister taxa should predominate. Expand
On the Fine Structure of Opisthobranch Egg Masses (Mollusca, Gastropoda)
TLDR
The light-microscopic structure and ultrastructure of the egg masses of some species of Opisthobranchia (Mollusca, Gastropoda) are presented and discussed and interspecific differences in this general structure are apparent in the number of embryos per capsule, the thickness of the capsules, the fine structure of the capsule and the density and fine structures of the mucous layers.
