Land- and freshwater Shells collected by Dr. H. ten Kate in Soemba, Timor and other East-Indian islands

  title={Land- and freshwater Shells collected by Dr. H. ten Kate in Soemba, Timor and other East-Indian islands},
  author={M. M. Schepman}
The shells collected by Dr. ten Kate, are from localities which were still very imperfectly or not at all explored. To the latter category belongs the isle of Soemba, which has furnished a few very fine and interesting new species. Other species, though known to science, are remarkable for the novelty of their localities or because the habitat was not yet ascertained. Considering that Dr. ten Kate travelled in behalf of the Dutch Geographical Society and that his chief occupations consisted of… Expand

Taxonomic vandalism in malacology: comments on molluscan taxa recently described by N. N. Thach and colleagues (2014–2019)
a Vietnamese malacologist Nguyen Ngoc Thach described 235 land snail species and subspecies from Southeast Asia with co-authors; further 11 species were described by an Austrian malacologist FranzExpand
A glimpse in the dark? A first phylogenetic approach in a widespread freshwater snail from tropical Asia and northern Australia (Cerithioidea, Thiaridae)
It is suggested that populations from the Oriental region cannot be distinguished on the basis of shell morphology, radula characters and their reproductive mode and are monophyletic based on mitochondrial sequences, highlighting the need for a comprehensive revision of the genus-group systematics of Thiaridae as a whole.
