The family Aglajidae includes several species of benthic, carnivorous cephalaspidean sea slugs, which generally lack a radula, have an internal shell, a posterior shield with short to moderate caudal lobes, and sensory cilia present on the head. The present study reports a phylogenetic analysis of the Aglajidae based on the mitochondrial genes 16S and CO1 and the nuclear gene H3, including 160 specimens of 54 species, that confirms the monophyly of Aglajidae as well as most taxonomically… CONTINUE READING
