A comparative histological study was undertaken to reveal the morphological diversity and systematic characters of a radula-supporting organ of gastropods. Observations on 33 species, all from different families, revealed six major morphological characters: (1) the number of odontophoral cartilages or radular bolsters: 0, 1 (fused), 2, 4, 5, 6 and 10; (2) histology categorized into 6 types based on the properties of cartilage matrix and cells; (3) the presence or absence of an enclosing… Expand
Three‐dimensional reconstruction of the odontophoral cartilages of Caenogastropoda (Mollusca: Gastropoda) using micro‐CT: Morphology and phylogenetic significance
TLDR
Considerable morphological diversity of the odontophoral cartilage was found within Caenogastropoda, including the presence of thin cartilaginous appendages, asymmetrically overlapping cartilages, and reflexed cartilage margins. Expand
Radula morphology of Clione limacina (Phipps, 1774) (Gastropoda: Heterobranchia: Gymnosomata)
TLDR
The firm connection between radula and radular bolster without a subradular membrane, the muscular radular support structure, which gives additional mobility to the radula, and muscles which connect hook sacs could indicate a significant contribution of the radulas to scraping the prey. Expand
Not just scratching the surface: distinct radular motion patterns in Mollusca
TLDR
It is discovered that the animals can use the radula as counter bearings enabling the tearing of large food items enabling the animals to grab and tear food. Expand
Phylogeny of the Caenogastropoda (Mollusca), based on comparative morphology
TLDR
The systematics, classification and phylogeny of the Caenogastropoda are revised based on an analysis of the morphology of representatives of all branches, and a number of new supra-superfamiliar taxa are introduced. Expand
Comparative Morphology and Redescription of Three Species of Calliostoma (Gastropoda, Trochoidea) from Brazilian Coast
TLDR
The morphology of Calliostoma adspersum, C. depictum and C. hassler, from the Brazilian coast, were studied in detail and it is concluded that C. vinosum is a synonym of C.Hasler, because specimens identifiable as both species occur within a single ontogenetic series. Expand
Feeding experiments on Vittina turrita (Mollusca, Gastropoda, Neritidae) reveal tooth contact areas and bent radular shape during foraging
TLDR
Feeding experiments under controlled conditions were introduced for stylommatophoran gastropods with isodont radulae and are now applied to heterodont and complex radULae, which may provide a good basis for future studies on radula functional morphology. Expand
Functional morphology of the buccal complex of Flabellina verrucosa (Gastropoda: Opisthobranchia)
TLDR
This feeding mechanism is suggested for Gastropoda for the first time and could be compared only with that in Tochuina tetraquetra and Dendronotus iris (Nudibranchia: Dendronsoti- da), although the morphology of radula in these three species differs considerably. Expand
Drilling in the dorid species Vayssierea cf. elegans (Gastropoda: Nudibranchia): Functional and comparative morphological aspects
The drilling mode of feeding is known from two clades of Gastropoda: Caenogastropoda and Heterobranchia. However, the level of convergence and parallelism or homology among these two lineages isExpand
Functional morphology and post-larval development of the buccal complex in Eubranchus rupium (Nudibranchia: Aeolidida: Fionidae).
TLDR
The buccal complex morphology and feeding mode were found to be similar in both adults and post-metamorphic specimens, and its general structures occur even in settled veligers. Expand
Skeneimorph but not skeneid: systematics and anatomy of Lodderena Iredale, 1924 (Vetigastropoda: Trochoidea)
The genus Lodderena Iredale, 1924 has been classified in the Skeneidae by most recent authors. However, this family, originally characterized by their minute size, lack of nacre in the teleoconchExpand

REDESCRIPTION AND 3D MORPHOLOGY OF WILLIAMIA GUSSONII (GASTROPODA: SIPHONARIIDAE)
TLDR
The hard-part characters appear to be more significant than the soft -part anatomy for the phylogeny of Williamia, and it is suggested that the genus is monophyletic. Expand
ANATOMY OF BATHYACMAEA SECUNDA OKUTANI, FUJIKURA & SASAKI, 1993 (PATELLOGASTROPODA: ACMAEIDAE)
TLDR
The comparison in anatomical and shell microstructural characters suggests that B. secunda shares no unique similarities with the Patelloidea or Neolepetopsidae and, therefore, is not closely related to these groups. Expand
Historical and biomechanical analysis of integration and dissociation in molluscan feeding, with special emphasis on the true limpets (Patellogastropoda: Gastropoda)
TLDR
A biomechanical model explaining the structural conditions necessary for the plesiomorphic kinematic state (flexoglossy) is presented, and it is concluded that lack of flexure in patellogastropods is caused by the dissociation of the subradular membrane and cartilage supports. Expand

TLDR
The anatomy is described of seven new species of limpet from hydrothermal vents in five new genera in the new family Peltospiridae, new superfamily Peltepiracea (McLean, 1989) and indicates that fertilization is internal. Expand
