Sulcospira Troschel, 1858, is not only the taxonomically oldest but also one of the most poorly known genera of Southeast Asian Pachychilidae. It serves as an instructive case study as to how the puzzling systematics of freshwater Cerithioidea has hampered a deeper understanding of their phylogeny and evolution. The genus has been established for the Javan freshwater gastropod Melanin sulcospira Mousson, 1849, on the grounds of its round, multispiral operculum and an elongated main cusp in the… Expand
