Recent genera and species of the family Haliotidae Rafinesque, 1815 (Gastropoda : Vetigastropoda)

  title={Recent genera and species of the family Haliotidae Rafinesque, 1815 (Gastropoda : Vetigastropoda)},
  author={Daniel L. Geiger},
  journal={The Nautilus},
This dissertation evaluates the evolutionary history of the marine gastropod family Haliotidae, part of the clade Vetigastropoda. Abalone are important for commercial fisheries, hence are relatively well-known. However, it is surprising that the assessment of its species-level diversity has remained untouched since the beginning of this century. After one hundred years of neglect it seems appropriate to re-evaluate the alpha and beta taxonomy of the family and to provide a hypothesis of… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Fossil and Recent abalone both apparently lived in the shallow, rocky sublittoral in tropical and temperate climates, and no on-shore/off-shore pattern is detected.
Molecular markers for abalone research
The utility of molecular genetic markers in abalone research is examined, with particular emphasis to the Australian fishery and aquaculture industries.
Exploring the Phylogenetic Utility of ITS Sequences for Animals: A Test Case for Abalone (Haliotis)
To evaluate the general utility of sequences of the nuclear rDNA internal transcribed spacer (ITS) regions for phylogenetic analyses of animal species groups and their broader relationships,
Evolution of large body size in abalones (Haliotis): patterns and implications
These findings support the view that fleshy-algal dominated ecosystems radiated rapidly in the coastal oceans with the onset of the most recent glacial age and indicate that large body size appears suddenly at the Miocene/Pliocene boundary.
New species of Australian Scissurellidae (Mollusca: Gastropoda: Vetigastropoda) with remarks on Australian and Indo-Malayan species
Three new species of Scissurellidae from Australia are described and multiple specimens are illustrated here, along with radulae and distributional maps.
Marine molluscs from Cyprus: new data and checklist
A total amount of 696 species is here reported in a newly formed checklist of Molluscs of Cyprus, considering all the previous works concerned about the malacological fauna occurring in the area under investigation and the additional species the authors have identified.
George Perry’s molluscan taxa and notes on the editions of his Conchology of 1811
The molluscan taxa named by George Perry in his two publications, the Arcana and the Conchology, are listed with notations on their current status, some figures being identified to the species level for the first time, some being placed in the synonymy of earlier names and others declared nomina dubia.
Haliotis mykonosensis Owen, Hanavan & Hall, 2001 in the Procida Island (Gulf of Naples) and in the Central Mediterranean Sea, with notes on the Mediterranean HALIOTIDAE
Seventeen living specimens of Haliotis mykonosensis Owen, Hanavan & Hall, 2001 are reported from the area between the wharf of Sancio Cattolico and Punta di Pioppeto (northern side of Procida Island,
Genetic Diversity and Molecular Markers of the Tropical Abalone (Haliotis asinina) in Thailand
Genetic diversity of abalone in Thailand, Haliotis asinina, H. ovina, and H. varia, was analyzed by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) of 18S and 16S rDNAs, with randomly amplified polymorphic DNA
