Smithsonian Contributions to Zoology, number 510,211 pages, 145 figures, 45 tables, 1992.—The genus Cerithium Bruguiere, 1789, comprises a large group of morphologically highly variable species characterized by many-whorled, elongate shells having ovate apertures, slightly reflected anterior canals and sculpture, consisting of axial ribs, spiral cords with beads and nodes, and…

Cryptic yet colorful: anatomy and relationships of a new genus of Cerithiidae (Caenogastropoda, Cerithioidea) from coral reef drop‐offs

Bayesian analysis of partial mitochondrial COI and 16S rRNA sequences confirm the placement of the C. koperbergi complex within a monophyletic Bittiinae, despite the apparent absence of a unifying anatomical feature.

A new species of Cerithium (Gastropoda: Cerithiidae) from the South China Sea

Specimens of a new species of Cerithiidae, Cerithium mangrovum n. sp., were collected during two surveys along the coasts of Hainan and Guangdong Province, China. Usually associated with potamidid

Abstract Thirty-one gastropod species and one type of isolated larval shell are described from a quarry near Ambatolafia in the Mahajanga Basin, northwestern Madagascar. The ammonite fauna indicates

A New Cerithioidean Genus Megistocerithium (Gastropoda; Mollusca) from the Miocene of Southeast Asia: A Possible Relict of Mesozoic “Eustomatidae”

A new genus and new species, Megistocerithium magoi, is described herein, which is amongst the largest fossil cerithioidean gastropods (except for Turritellidae) and possibly a relict of the Mesozoic Eustomatidae.

Some Eocene Cerithioids (Gastropoda, Mollusca) from Kutch, Western India, and Their Bearing on Palaeobiogeography of the Indian Subcontinent

The cerithioids are a diverse group of gastropods found globally as fossil and living animals during the Cenozoic Era. Their systematics is riddled with problems stemming from large morphological

Distinct protoconchs recognised in three of the larger Mediterranean Cerithium species (Caenogastropoda: Cerithiidae)

It is shown that protoconch characters can be reliably used to identify the larger Mediterranean species (Cerithium alucastrum, C. repandum and C. vulgatum), and to assess their intraspecific variability, and to confirm their respective non-planktotrophic and plankTotrophic development previously inferred from protoconchid morphology.

TOWARD A SYSTEMATIC REVISION OF THE SOUTHEAST ASIAN FRESHWATER GASTROPOD BROTIA H. ADAMS, 1866 (CERITHIOIDEA: PACHYCHILIDAE): AN ACCOUNT OF SPECIES FROM AROUND THE SOUTH CHINA SEA

A detailed characterization of Brotia sensu lato is provided and, as a basis for a taxonomic revision, comparative conchological, anatomical, and biogeographical data for the most crucial constituent species including their synonymies are provided.

Phylogeny of the gastropod superfamily Cerithioidea using morphology and molecules

The combination of diverse data sources (morphology, 16S and 28S sequences) and inclusion of unconserved regions of the alignments improved the recovery of monophyletic families, and a consensus is beginning to emerge in the recognition of three main assemblages.

More than a gut feeling: utility of midgut anatomy in phylogeny of the Cerithioidea (Mollusca: Caenogastropoda)

The Cerithioidea is a large and diverse superfamily of marine, brackish, and freshwater snails. The complexity and variety of midgut features within this group have long been known, but have been

A rare and unusual new bittiine genus with two new species from the South Pacific (Cerithiidae, Gastropoda)

Bayesian analysis of partial COI and 16S rDNA sequences demonstrates a placement in the Bittiinae, further extending the morphological concept of the subfamily.
