The genus Sibogasyrinx has to date included only four species of rare deep-water Conoidea, each known from few specimens. In shell characters it strongly resembles three distantly-related genera, two of which, Comitas and Leucosyrinx, belong to a different family, the Pseudomelatomidae. A molecular phylogenetic analysis of a large amount of material of Conoidea has revealed the existence of much additional undescribed diversity within Sibogasyrinx from the central Indo-Pacific and temperate… 


A quest for the lost types of Lophiotoma (Gastropoda: Conoidea: Turridae): integrative taxonomy in a nomenclatural mess
Ten species in the genus Lophiotoma are delimited using two unlinked genetic markers, shell and radula characters, and geographic and bathymetric distribution, using an integrative approach.
Evolution of the Radular Apparatus in Conoidea (Gastropoda: Neogastropoda) as Inferred from a Molecular Phylogeny
The Terebridae, the sister group of Turridae, are characterized by very high radular variability, and the transformation of the marginal radular teeth within this single clade repeats the evolution of the radular apparatus across the entire Conoidea.
New Caledonia: The major centre of biodiversity for volutomitrid molluscs (Mollusca: Neogastropoda: Volutomitridae)
The high number of species in the New Caledonia region appears to result from four factors: regional spatial heterogeneity, frequency of hard substrates, syntopy, and a historical heritage shared with Australia and New Zealand, which until now ranked as the major centre of volutomitrid diversity.
Exon-Capture-Based Phylogeny and Diversification of the Venomous Gastropods (Neogastropoda, Conoidea)
The phylogeny revealed in this study provides a robust framework to reinterpret changes in Conoidea anatomy through time, and is used to test the impact of the venom gland and radular type on diversification rates.
Large‐scale species delimitation method for hyperdiverse groups
The formalized strategy applied here outlines an effective and reproducible protocol for large‐scale species delimitation of hyperdiverse groups and identified 27 novel species hypotheses not linked to available species names in the literature.
ABGD, Automatic Barcode Gap Discovery for primary species delimitation
Automatic Barcode Gap Discovery is fast, simple method to split a sequence alignment data set into candidate species that should be complemented with other evidence in an integrative taxonomic approach.
DNA primers for amplification of mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I from diverse metazoan invertebrates.
We describe "universal" DNA primers for polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification of a 710-bp fragment of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I gene (COI) from 11 invertebrate phyla:
Using microwaves to prepare gastropods for DNA barcoding
A method traditionally used to clean shells that involves placing the living gastropods in a microwave (MW) oven is experimented with, resulting in higher percentage of DNA extraction success and a three‐ to fivefold increase in productivity compared with other methods.
Ultrafast Approximation for Phylogenetic Bootstrap
This work proposes an ultrafast bootstrap approximation approach (UFBoot) to compute the support of phylogenetic groups in maximum likelihood (ML) based trees and offers an efficient and easy-to-use software to perform the UFBoot analysis with ML tree inference.
ASAP: assemble species by automatic partitioning
It is demonstrated that ASAP has the potential to become a major tool for taxonomists as it proposes rapidly in a full graphical exploratory interface relevant species hypothesis as a first step of the integrative taxonomy process.
