Eight new species of Scissurellidae and Anatomidae are described: Scissurella kaiserae new species from the Panamic; Scissurella lorenzi new species from the Indo-Malayan archipelago; Scissurella maraisorum new species from South Africa; Sinezona garciai new species from the Caribbean; Sinezona globosa new species from the tropical Western Pacific; Sinezona macleani new species from the Philippines; Sinezona singeri new species from the Red Sea; and Anatoma jansenae new species from southern… 
Four new species of Anatomidae (Mollusca: Vetigastropoda) from the Indian Ocean (Reunion, Mayotte) and Australia, with notes on a novel radular type for the family
Four new species of Anatomidae are described: Anatoma herberti n. sp. with strong axial sculpture on the shoulder and base; A. austrolissa n. sp. with almost smooth sculpture except for axial cords
Taxonomic Revision of the Anatomidae (Mollusca: Gastropoda: Vetigastropoda) from Brazil, with Description of Four New Species
The review of a large amount of shells in malacological collections in Brazil, including material from recent dredging along the southeastern coast, revealed the occurrence of seven additional species: Anatoma americana Bandel, 1998, synonymized under A. proxima by Geiger (2012), is herein considered a valid species; Anatoma atlantica; and Anatoma alternatisculpta Geiger & McLean, 2010.
Scissurellidae and Anatomidae from Manazuru , Sagami Bay , and Okinawa , Japan ( Mollusca : Gastropoda : Vetigastropoda )
Depth preferences of Scissurellidae and Anatomidae are examined on a world-wide scale, but no change in turnover depth with latitude could be detected; the depth preferences of the two families are most likely explained by the extent to which variable food sources can be utilised.
A new scissurelloid genus and species (Mollusca, Gastropoda) from the Late Triassic Cassian Formation
The finding of Triassurella corroborates the on-shore/off-shore hypothesis for the vertical colonization of the ocean, which says that originations and innovations tend to occur first in near-shore, shallow-water environments and spread subsequently to deep-water off-shore environments.
Species Of Scissurellidae and Anatomidae From Sub-Antarctic and Antarctic Waters (Gastropoda: Vetigastropoda)
A systematic revision on the shallow and abyssal species of Scissurellidae and Anatomidae occurring in Sub-Antarctic and Antarctic waters was carried out, including three new species herein described.
Early Jurassic Trochotomidae (Vetigastropoda, Pleurotomarioidea) from the Neuquén Basin, Argentina
The new taxa reported here represent a component of the pleurotomarioidean adaptive radiation that took place in the Tethyan region during the earliest Jurassic, and are related to local patch coral reefs of shallow, open-marine paleoenvironments, agreeing with the known habitat of most species of this family.
An annotated catalogue and bibliography of the taxonomy, synonymy and distribution of the Recent Vetigastropoda of South Africa (Mollusca).
A complete inventory of the known Recent vetigastropod fauna of South Africa is provided and Oxystele antoni is proposed as a new name for Trochus (Turbo) variegatus.
Micromolluscs in Japan: taxonomic composition, habitats, and future topics
In this review, a summary of the current state of knowledge is given for all known micromolluscan families distributed in Japan.
Primary types in the collection of molluscs in the KwaZulu-Natal Museum: Patellogastropoda and Lepetellida
All primary (name-bearing) types of Patelloidea, Lottioidea, Fissurelloidea and Scissurelloidea deposited in the KwaZulu-Natal Museum are presented. The reference to the original publication,
The families Scissurellidae, Anatomidae, and Sutilizonidae in the northeast Pacific
The microscopic slit bearing gastropods of the northeastern Pacific are reviewed and one additional species has been described (Anatoma georgii Geiger, 2017).


Revision of the Australian species of Anatomidae (Mollusca: Gastropoda: Vetigastropoda)
The Australian members of the vetigastropod family Anatomidae are revised and two new species are described. The family has thus far been treated as a subfamily of Scissurellidae, but recent
New species of Australian Scissurellidae (Mollusca: Gastropoda: Vetigastropoda) with remarks on Australian and Indo-Malayan species
Three new species of Scissurellidae from Australia are described and multiple specimens are illustrated here, along with radulae and distributional maps.
Phylogenetic assessment of characters proposed for the generic classification of Recent Scissurellidae (Gastropoda : Vetigastropoda) with a description of one new genus and six new species from Easter Island and Australia
Cladistic analysis based on shell and radular characteristics, using autapomorphies to code inapplicables, revealed several patterns and revealed that scissurelline protoconch sculpture is highly homoplastic.
Molecular phylogeny of Vetigastropoda reveals non-monophyletic Scissurellidae , Trochoidea , and Fissurelloidea
A molecular phylogeny using cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1, Histone H3, and 18S rRNA, comprising 3038 aligned characters, was developed for 38 ingroup vetigastropods and two neritimorph outgroups, supporting the monophyly of Fissurellidae, Haliotidae, Lepetodrilidae, Pleurotomariidae, and Peltospiridae.
