Conoidean gastropods of the genera Kermia, Oliver, 1915 and Pseudodaphnella Boettger, 1895 (Raphitomidae) are common in shallow-water habitats of the tropical Indo-Pacific. They form a distinct morphologically homogeneous complex, easily recognizable by sculpture and colour pattern, encompassing around 80 described species. Examination of a vast material accumulated during recent expeditions in various regions of the Indo-Pacific revealed a number of undescribed species of this complex. Our… Expand
Where the snails have no name: a molecular phylogeny of Raphitomidae (Neogastropoda: Conoidea) uncovers vast unexplored diversity in the deep seas of temperate southern and eastern Australia
TLDR
South-eastern Australia appears as a possible hotspot for both raphitomid diversity and endemism, when compared with adjacent areas, and a robust phylogenetic framework is produced and used to delimit genera. Expand
Revision of the genus Thetidos Hedley, 1899 (Gastropoda: Conoidea: Raphitomidae) in the Indo-Pacific with descriptions of three new species
TLDR
Thetidos morsura is the only species of the genus that possesses a paucispiral protoconch suggestive of a non-planktotrophic development, although it displays a wide geographic range and a high morphological variability. Expand
Integrative taxonomy of the Clavus canalicularis species complex (Drilliidae, Conoidea, Gastropoda) with description of four new species
TLDR
This study revisits species delimitation in a morphological cluster of species from the Indo-Pacific referred to as the Clavus canalicularis complex, using an integrative taxonomy approach and finds that in addition to five known species, the complex comprises four new species. Expand
Candidate cases of poecilogony in Neogastropoda: implications for the systematics of the genus Raphitoma Bellardi, 1847
TLDR
This work has studied the inter- v. intraspecific variation in larval development in the north-east Atlantic neogastropod genus Raphitoma Bellardi, revealing that the interspecific changes were planktotrophy > lecithOTrophy, and all have occurred in the Pleistocene, after 2.5 million years ago, suggestive of a major role played by Pleistsocene Mediterranean oceanographic conditions. Expand
Too familiar to be questioned? Revisiting the Crassispira cerithina species complex (Gastropoda: Conoidea Pseudomelatomidae)
TLDR
The results demonstrate that even ‘well-known’ and seemingly well defined species may be species complexes and that molecular techniques should be routinely applied to confirm specimen identification, especially as part of resource-consuming studies, such as toxinology. Expand
Bouchetispira ponderi n. sp. (Conoidea: Bouchetispiridae), a new deep-sea gastropod from temperate Australia
TLDR
B. ponderi bears notable similarities in several shell characters to Belomitra pacifica (Belomitridae), providing another example of convergence with regard to shell morphology in the Neogastropoda. Expand
Few and far apart: integrative taxonomy of Australian species of Gladiobela and Pagodibela (Conoidea : Raphitomidae) reveals patterns of wide distributions and low abundance
Abstract. The deep-sea malacofauna of temperate Australia remains comparatively poorly known. However, a recent influx of DNA-suitable material obtained from a series of deep-sea cruises hasExpand
Not all spotted cats are leopards: evidence for a Hemilienardia ocellata species complex (Gastropoda: Conoidea: Raphitomidae)
TLDR
Morphological and molecular phylogenetic analyses revealed four species that share this “characteristic” colour pattern but demonstrate consistent differences in size and shell proportions, including three new species – Hemilienardia acinonyx sp. Expand
A critical review of Antarctic Conoidea (Neogastropoda)
TLDR
Although there is a similar relative abundance of conoideans in Antarctic waters to that seen in other well-studied faunas, the low number of conOideans is indicative of the general impoverishment of the gastropod fauna in the region. Expand
New species and records of Newtoniellinae (Caenogastropoda, Newtoniellidae) from Brazil
TLDR
Newtoniellinae is a worldwide marine group of cold-water, deep-sea species, comprising the genera Cerithiella, Paramendax and Trituba, which was represented in Brazil by four species before this study, but now has nine species. Expand

Five new species of the genus Lienardia (Conidae: Gastropoda) from the shallow waters of central Philippines
TLDR
Examination of radulae in described species of the genus Lienardia showed unexpected morphologic diversity, which suggests that either rapid morphological specialization of Lienards species had taken place in the evolution of this genus, or similarity of shells in LienARDia species is possibly convergent. Expand
Catalog of Recent and fossil turrids (Mollusca: Gastropoda)
TLDR
A large number of species-level taxa were found that are little known and need study to determine their place in turrid systematics and provide a foundation for future studies of these important marine carnivorous gastropods. Expand
Macroevolution of venom apparatus innovations in auger snails (Gastropoda; Conoidea; Terebridae).
TLDR
A molecular phylogeny of 89 terebrid species belonging to 12 of the 15 currently accepted genera and the discovery of a previously unrecognized lineage, which includes species of Euterebra and Duplicaria indicates that the current genus-level classification of the group is plagued with homoplasy and requires further taxonomic investigations.

Patterns of cladogenesis in the venomous marine gastropod genus Conus from the Cape Verde islands.
TLDR
The results suggest that the main factor responsible for species diversity in the archipelago may be allopatric speciation promoted by the reduced dispersal capacity of nonplanktonic lecithotrophic larvae. Expand
Turridae (Mollusca: Gastropoda) of southern Africa and Mozambique. Part 3. Subfamily Borsoniinae
Eleven genera of Borsoniinae occur in southern Africa and Mozambique. Of these, one genus (Tropidoturris, type-species Pleurotoma scitecostata Sowerby, 1903) is new; another (Mitrel/atoma Powell,Expand
Morphological Proxies for Taxonomic Decision in Turrids (Mollusca, Neogastropoda): a Test of the Value of Shell and Radula Characters Using Molecular Data
TLDR
Molecular data confirm that specimens with different types of radulae constitute different species, but it is still unresolved whether species with semi-enrolled (=Iotyrris) and duplex teeth (=Xenuroturris) form two supported monophyletic clades. Expand
Phylogeny of the genus Turris: correlating molecular data with radular anatomy and shell morphology.
TLDR
An initial molecular analysis of the type genus of the family, Turris Röding, 1798, thought to be among the most well characterized groups in the family is shown to be not monophyletic, and five previously described species belong to the subgenus Turris. Expand
Loss of planktotrophy and speciation: geographical fragmentation in the deep-water gastropod genus Bathytoma (Gastropoda, Conoidea) in the western Pacific
TLDR
It can be hypothesized that Bathytoma populations should represent numerous, mostly allopatric taxa restricted to a single or contiguous island groups, and tested this hypothesis using molecular and morphological characters independently. Expand
Hidden diversity and endemism on seamounts: focus on poorly dispersive neogastropods
TLDR
This study examines the population genetics of several caenogastropods from the Norfolk and Lord Howe seamounts with contrasting modes of larval development, and molecular data indicate an unexpected taxonomic diversity within the existing species names. Expand
