This paper is the first report of the freshwater mussel Margaritifera togakushiensis from northern Sakhalin. Species identification was performed based on shell characteristics. Twenty six dead shells and one live mussel were collected from the Dagi River in northern Sakhalin. One pair of the dead shells was regarded as M. togakushiensis, whereas all of the other specimens were Margaritifera laevis (Haas, 1910) (= Kurilinaia zatravkini (Bogatov, Prozorova & Starobogatov, 2003)).

Taxonomy and Distribution of Freshwater Pearl Mussels (Unionoida: Margaritiferidae) of the Russian Far East
The freshwater pearl mussel family Margaritiferidae includes 13 extant species, which are all listed by IUCN as endangered or vulnerable taxa. In this study, an extensive spatial sampling ofExpand
Phylogenetic relationships of two freshwater pearl mussels, Margaritifera laevis (Haas, 1910) and Margaritifera togakushiensis Kondo & Kobayashi, 2005 (Bivalvia: Margaritiferidae), in the Japanese archipelago
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationship between Margaritifera togakushiensis Kondo & Kobayashi, 2005, a newly recognised species distributed in the Japanese archipelago, and its closely related species, M. laevis (Haas, 1910), was analysed based on the mitochondrial COI and nuclear ribosomal gene sequences. Expand
Multi-locus fossil-calibrated phylogeny, biogeography and a subgeneric revision of the Margaritiferidae (Mollusca: Bivalvia: Unionoida).
TLDR
The findings highlight the complex biogeographic history of the Margaritiferidae as an intermixing of ancient vicariance and dispersal events, which were most likely associated with some inland barriers, continental movements and a sea level dynamic. Expand
Unionid mussel composition and ditch environments in floodplain and alluvial fan geomorphic types: a case study of a Lake Biwa river basin
To determine the differences in the ditch environments and mussel composition between floodplains and alluvial fans, two geomorphic types in a Lake Biwa river basin were surveyed. An intrinsicExpand
Unionid Freshwater Mussels in Irrigation Ditches are Affected by Physical Environmental Factors and Proximity to Paddy Fields
TLDR
The results show that sediment type, sediment softness, water depth, and flow velocity of irrigation ditches affect the density of unionid mussels; the effects of each environment factor and their relative importance differed by species. Expand

A study of the morphologically conservative and allegedly most primitive family of freshwater mussels, the Margaritiferidae, can provide much information in understanding the evolution and adaptiveExpand
REVIEW OF THE SYSTEMATICS AND GLOBAL DIVERSITY OF FRESHWATER MUSSEL SPECIES (BIVALVIA: UNIONOIDA)
TLDR
The species-level diversity of the Unionoida is described by reviewing the secondary literature and developing a comprehensive taxonomic database, and it is suggested that reevaluation of these faunas with modern methods will likely increase recognized species diversity, especially on the southern continents.

Survival of Glochidial Larvae of the Freshwater Pearl Mussel, Margaritifera laevis (Bivalvia: Unionoida), at Different Temperatures: A Comparison Between Two Populations With and Without Recruitment
TLDR
A trade-off is suggested between high fertility and low glochidial survival rate in Margaritiferidae, which tends to be shorter than in other families in Unionoida. Expand
Palearctic freshwater mussel (Mollusca: Bivalvia: Unionoida) diversity and the Comparatory Method as a species concept
TLDR
It is argued that the Comparatory Method is typological and that the “species” recognized have no evolutionary or biological basis, and the traditional, Biological species are regarded as better representative of actual species diversity, but further revision is required. Expand

Phylogeography and conservation genetics of endangered European Margaritiferidae (Bivalvia: Unionoidea)
TLDR
The genetic study explores allozymic variability (27 loci) and differentiation at the mitochondrial sequence level (partial COI and 16S rRNA gene sequences) and phylogenetic relationships between these two species and other related taxa were established. Expand
INVESTIGATIONS INTO THE PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS OF FRESHWATER PEARL MUSSELS (BIVALVIA: MARGARITIFERIDAE) BASED ON MOLECULAR DATA: IMPLICATIONS FOR THEIR TAXONOMY AND BIOGEOGRAPHY
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships among selected members of the family Margaritiferidae are investigated using sequence data from five molecular markers to support recognition of those nominal species for which multiple samples were included in the study. Expand

TLDR
Though the range of Dolly Varden overlaps with the two other chars, it is most closely related to Arctic char, whereas bull trout and white-spotted char are sister taxa. Expand
Host Relationships at Reversed Generation Times: Margaritifera (Bivalvia) and Salmonids
TLDR
The evolution of “covenants” may account for the continued persistence of such host-parasite systems and can be thought as being involved in an arms race where new host defences select for new parasite offences and vice versa. Expand
