Molecular phylogeny and revised classification of the Buccinoidea (Neogastropoda)
It is demonstrated that anatomy is rather uniform within the superfamily Buccinoidea, and with exceptions, the rather uniform radular morphology alone does not allow the allocation of genera to a particular family without additional molecular data.
A review of fossil Bursidae and their use for phylogeny calibration
A revision of the fossil record is proposed that can be used to date molecular phylogenetic trees of Bursidae and creates two new genera, Olssonia n.
A review of extant Tudivasum Rosenberg & Petit, 1987 (Neogastropoda: Turbinellidae) and description of three new species from Western Australia
A molecular phylogeny based on mitochondrial DNA sequence data is generated to test morphological species concepts and reconstruct relationships among four of the described species, and high levels of divergence within one of the new species could indicate an additional cryptic species.
The queen conch mitogenome: intra- and interspecific mitogenomic variability in Strombidae and phylogenetic considerations within the Hypsogastropoda
The data indicated that Stromboidea diverged into two principal clades in the early Cretaceous while Strombidae diversified in the Paleocene, and lineage diversification within A. gigas took place in the Pleistocene.
High genetic connectivity in a gastropod with long-lived planktonic larvae
This study was based on the analysis of DNA sequence data for the 658-bp barcoding fragment of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) gene, which is the largest DNA sequence dataset assembled to date for B. scrobilator.
The first complete mitochondrial genome of Bursidae from Bufonaria rana (Caenogastropoda: Tonnoidea)
This study was the first available complete mitogenomes of Bursidae and will provide useful genetic information for future phylogenetic and taxonomic classification of Tonnoideans.
The balanced life: evolution of ventral shell weighting in gastropods

Functional considerations and comparisons indicate that the enhanced gravitational stability provided by a ventral callus evolved only in conditions of low-cost calcification and when predators capable of dislodging or overturning gastropods or causing them to flee were important agents of selection.
Convergence, parallelism, and function of extreme parietal callus in diverse groups of Cenozoic Gastropoda
Tests of functional ecology suggest that the extreme parietal callus might function both to defend against crushing predation through increased body size and dissipation of forces while aiding in shell orientation of highly mobile gastropods while suggesting the essential contribution of phylogeny when interpreting homoplasy.


Classification of fossil and Recent Calyptraeoidea ( Caenogastropoda ) with a discussion on neomesogastropod phylogeny
The somewhat confusing story of the systematic placement of the caenogastropod families Hipponicidae and Callptraeidae is brietly reviewed. lt is shown that the two families can be arranged in the
An outline of cassoidean phylogeny ( Mollusca , Gastropoda )
The Ranellinae and Oocorythinae are both paraphyletic taxa and are considered to represent the stem-groups of their families and probably evolved from the same Early Cretaceous gastropod ancestor as the Ranellidae.
Taxonomy of gastropods of the families Ranellidae (= Cymatiidae) and Bursidae. Part 1. Adoption of Ranellidae, and review of Linatella Gray, 1857
The first present-day specimen is recorded from eastern Northland, New Zealand where, however, L. caudata occurred commonly during late Pleistocene time.
Sphaeriid and corbiculid clams represent separate heterodont bivalve radiations into freshwater environments.
This work constructed a representative molecular phylogeny, based on domains D1-D3 of the nuclear large subunit 28S rDNA, for 18 heterodont bivalves and for two oyster outgroup taxa, and found that the results do not support the monophyly of the Corbiculoidea and are consistent with the hypothesis that all three families of freshwaterheterodonts represent independent colonization events by marine ancestors.
One for each ocean: revision of the Bursa granularis (Röding, 1798) species complex (Gastropoda: Tonnoidea: Bursidae)
It is demonstrated that a long planktotrophic larval stage, common among Tonnoidea, does not necessarily ensure a circumtropical species distribution and is provided new standardized conchological descriptions for each of them.
Phylogeny of the Caenogastropoda (Mollusca), based on comparative morphology
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.
