Midgut morphology of gastropod molluscs has been underutilized as a resource of characters for phylogenetic analysis. The exclusion of these features reflects the inference that they will be uninformative in determining phylogenetic relationships because they are functionally correlated. In general, it has been hypothesized that the style sac form of midgut is an adaptation to microphagy and becomes secondarily simplified in taxa that have adopted a macrophagous/carnivorous habit with a… Expand
