The complete mitogenome of Orcula dolium (Draparnaud, 1801); ultra-deep sequencing from a single long-range PCR using the Ion-Torrent PGM
It is shown it is feasible to ultra-deep sequence a mitogenome from a single LR-PCR, which results in a more efficient use of NGS capacity and is an effective selection against nuclear mitochondrial inserts (NUMTS).
A nomenclator of extant and fossil taxa of the Melanopsidae (Gastropoda, Cerithioidea)
Abstract This nomenclator provides details on all published names in the family-, genus-, and species-group, as well as for a few infrasubspecific names introduced for, or attributed to, the family…

- Environmental ScienceIraqi Journal of Science
Gastropod species belonging to Qamchuqa Formation (Aptian-Cenomanian) in the North of Iraq are studied. These species are Harpagodes nodosus (J.de C. Sowerby,1823), Ampullina sp.1 (Hannaa and…
Molecular phylogeny and evolution of Pulmonata (Mollusca: Gastropoda) on the basis of mitochondrial (16S, COI) and nuclear markers (18S, 28S): an overview
- BiologyJournal of Genetics
The phylogenetic relationships among the major groups of Pulmonata were studied by the information derived from a concatenated dataset consisting of mitochondrial (16S and COI) and nuclear (18S and…
Sperm ultrastructure in Culmenella rezvoji (Lindholm, 1929) (Gastropoda: Hygrophila)
- BiologyRuthenica, Russian Malacological Journal
The spermatozoa of Culmenella have distinctive characters (three glycogen helices and high-profile surface ridge in the apical portion of the midpiece) that should be potentially useful in resolving the taxonomic position of this genus.

Annotated Checklist of the Terrestrial Gastropods of Nepal
- Environmental ScienceZooKeys
This very first checklist of the terrestrial gastropods of Nepal includes 138 species and six subspecies, of which 22 species are endemic and four are introduced, including 34 species recorded for the first time in Nepal and new distribution records for another 30 species.
Comparative anatomy of the fasciolariids Pustulatirus ogum and Hemipolygona beckyae from Brazil (Gastropoda: Buccinoidea: Peristerniinae)
The Brazilian species Pustulatirus ogum and Hemipolygona beckyae were examined, and certain morphological characters were described, and they appear to be widespread among other fasciolariid species.
A Systematic Revision of the Land Snails of the Western Ghats of India
- Environmental Science, Biology
This work critically evaluate and clarify the nomenclature and taxonomy of these snails within a modern systematic framework, designating lectotypes and neotypes where appropriate, and for the first time provides colour images and specimen data of type material for all the Western Ghats taxa, alongside distributional data from the original literature.
Biodiversity of cone snails and other venomous marine gastropods: evolutionary success through neuropharmacology.
- Biology, Environmental ScienceAnnual review of animal biosciences
Molecular phylogeny and venom peptide characterization provide an unusual multidisciplinary view of conoidean biodiversity at several taxonomic levels and the associated morphological, behavioral, and prey-preference changes that accompany these molecular changes are unknown.
