The complete 18S (SSU) rRNA gene and the partial 28S (LSU) rRNA gene of 49 taxa, including representatives of the Opisthobranchia, Pulmonata and Allogastropoda, were sequenced to infer the phylogeny of the Opisthobranchia and their major subordinate taxa Nudibranchia, Pleurobranchoidea, Tylodinoidea, Sacoglossa, Cephalaspidea s.l. and Anaspidea. For the first time the enigmatic taxon Acochlidiacea was included. Several tests were applied to the datasets to investigate relative evolutionary…

Systematic position of the pelagic Thecosomata and Gymnosomata within Opisthobranchia (Mollusca, Gastropoda) – revival of the Pteropoda
TLDR
Maximum parsimony, maximum likelihood, distance as well as Bayesian analysis of a combined dataset of the three genes reveals that Thecosomata and Gymnosomata are sister groups and together are closely related to Anaspidea.
The phylogeny of the Acteonoidea (Gastropoda): molecular systematics and first detailed morphological study of Rictaxis punctocaelatus (Carpenter, 1864)
TLDR
A sister-group relationship of the Acteonoidea to the ‘lower’ heterobranch taxon Rissoelloidea, implying a basal placement outside the Opisthobranchia and the current division into three families is challenged by recovery of only two clades.
Molecular phylogeny and evolution of Pulmonata (Mollusca: Gastropoda) on the basis of mitochondrial (16S, COI) and nuclear markers (18S, 28S): an overview
The phylogenetic relationships among the major groups of Pulmonata were studied by the information derived from a concatenated dataset consisting of mitochondrial (16S and COI) and nuclear (18S and
The first molecular phylogeny of cladobranchian opisthobranchs (Mollusca, Gastropoda, Nudibranchia).
TLDR
The first molecular phylogeny is presented for the highly diverse, opisthobranch molluscan Cladobranchia with new sequences of two mitochondrial and one nuclear genes for 95 specimens from 22 families and 38 genera with a species of Pleurobranchoidea as outgroup.
A new phylogeny of the Cephalaspidea (Gastropoda: Heterobranchia) based on expanded taxon sampling and gene markers.
TLDR
It is suggested that the family level taxonomy of the Cephalaspidea warrants a profound revision and several new family and genus names are required to reflect the new phylogenetic hypothesis presented here.
Molecular Phylogeny of the Sacoglossa, With a Discussion of Gain and Loss of Kleptoplasty in the Evolution of the Group
TLDR
Ph phylogenetic trees clearly revealed monophyly of the order Sacoglossa, which contained two sister clades: the shelled sacoglossan group (Oxynoacea + Cylindrobulla) and the non-shelled group (Plakobranchacea), and the family Volvatellidae was in a derived position within the OxynOacea.
Phylogeny of the family Aglajidae (Pilsbry, 1895) (Heterobranchia: Cephalaspidea) inferred from mtDNA and nDNA.
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of the Aglajidae based on the mitochondrial genes 16S and CO1 and the nuclear gene H3 suggests the existence of previously undetected species complexes that require additional study to determine the extent of undocumented biodiversity.
Out of Antarctica?--new insights into the phylogeny and biogeography of the Pleurobranchomorpha (Mollusca, Gastropoda).
TLDR
Estimation of divergence times revealed a long credible interval for the Pleurobranchomorpha, whereas the Ple Kurobranchinae diverged in Early Oligocene and underwent rapid radiation during Oligolithic and Early Miocene.
Molecular phylogeny of the Euthyneura (Mollusca, Gastropoda) with spacial focus on Opisthobranchia as a framework for reconstruction of evolution of diet
TLDR
The present study presents the currently most extensive analyses on opisthobranch phylogeny including 58 species from all major subgroups and finds Herbivory is found as the most likely ancestral diet of Euthyneura while carnivory probably evolved several times independently in different clades.
The Mitochondrial Genomes of the Nudibranch Mollusks, Melibe leonina and Tritonia diomedea, and Their Impact on Gastropod Phylogeny
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genomes of Melibe leonina and Tritonia diomedea are presented, and three nudibranchs from the unrepresented Cladobranchia group are reported, and phylogenetic analyses are reported on.

Origins and relationships of primitive members of the Opisthobranchia (Mollusca: Gastropoda)
An examination of possible prosobranch precursors of opisthobranchs and pulmonates suggests that archaeogastropods are poor candidates, as they lack the complex female glands which characterize all
Molecular systematics of the order anaspidea based on mitochondrial DNA sequence (12S, 16S, and COI).
TLDR
The molecular phylogeny supports the placement of the genus Akera, a taxon previously regarded by some authors as a cephalaspidean, within the Anaspidea and suggests that homoplasy may be an explanation for the morphological resemblance of this species to the more derived sea hares with highly fused parapodia and concentrated nerve ganglia.
Molecular phylogeny of euthyneura (mollusca: gastropoda).
TLDR
The monophyly of the Euthyneura (Opisthobranchia + Pulmonata) was rejected by the inclusion of the heterostrophan Pyramidella and the phylogenetic utility of two rare genomic changes is addressed.
New clades of euthyneuran gastropods (Mollusca) from 28S rRNA sequences.
TLDR
Morphological characters which support the new clades obtained here are discussed and first molecular confirmation of monophylies of Hygrophila, including Chilina, Acteonoidea, and Sacoglossa, which include both shell-bearing species and slugs are discussed.
Phylogeny of the Nudibranchia
TLDR
More than 100 morphological, anatomical and histological characters pertaining to the Nudibranchia are discussed in the course of a phylogenetic analysis and the paraphyly of the ‘Arminoidea’ is demonstrated.

TLDR
There is no clade present in the analyses corresponding to the taxon Opisthobranchia in the traditional sense, and the use of this name is probably better abandoned altogether.
Towards a phylogeny of gastropod molluscs: an analysis using morphological characters
TLDR
This is one of the first attempts to use Morphological and developmental characters to assess the relationships of all major clades using parsimony methods and discusses the major monophyletic groups within gastropods.
Shelled opisthobranchs.
TLDR
The results indicate that Opisthobranchia, Cephalaspidea and Sacoglossa are monophyletic taxa, and that Acteon, the traditional basal opisth Hobranch, is convincingly a lower heterobranch.
Parallel Evolution in Opisthobranch Gastropods and its Implications for Phylogenetic Methodology
TLDR
It is suggested that emphasis on unique innovation and divergent apomorphy presents a fruitful and scientifically consistent alternative to this dilemma and that many cladists have systematically dismissed some major operational and philosophical difficulties with their methods and ignored some alternative or supplementary techniques which might achieve better results.
