ABSTRACT 2,604 names at the rank of subtribe, tribe, subfamily, family and superfamily have been proposed for Recent and fossil gastropods, and another 35 for monoplacophorans. All names are listed in a nomenclator giving full bibliographical reference, date of publication, typification, and their nomenclatural availability and validity under the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature. Another 790 names, established for categories above the familygroup (infraorder to subclass) are listed… 

Genus-level revision of the Alycaeidae (Gastropoda, Cyclophoroidea), with an annotated species catalogue

This revision of the Alycaeidae made three main achievements: the Dicharax species were identified based on the absence of spiral striation on the entire shell; the Metalycaeus species were identifybased on the spiral striations of the protoconch; and Stomacosmethis was separated from Alycaeus based onThe extremely short sutural tube.

Annotated nomenclator of extant and fossil taxa of the Paludomidae (Caenogastropoda, Cerithioidea)

This nomenclator provides bibliographic details on all names in the family-, genus-, and species-group of the the family Paludomidae, including junior homonyms and objective junior synonyms as well as unavailable names such as nomina nuda, infrasubspecific names and, to some extent, incorrect subsequent spellings.

A molecular phylogeny of the gastropod family Haminoeidae sensu lato (Heterobranchia: Cephalaspidea): a generic revision

A new classification for Haminoeidae is proposed including 14 valid genera and one informal group and the relationships of genera are discussed and seven deep clades have been identified but are not formally named because of lack of recognisable synapomorphies for several of them.

Phylogenetic relationships and classification of Solaropsidae (Gastropoda: Stylommatophora)

The authors' analysis supports a monophyletic Solaropsidae within Sagdoidea, as well as its internal division into Solaropsinae and Caracolinae, and Epiphragmophoridae (formerly a subfamily of Xanthonychidae) is supported as a distinct family-level clade within Helicoidea.

Molecular phylogeny of Columbellidae (Gastropoda: Neogastropoda).

To reconstruct columbellid phylogeny and assess monophyly of the group, a multilocus dataset is assembled including five mitochondrial and nuclear genes, for 70 species in 31 genera and two of the most diverse nominal genera, Mitrella and Anachis, are supported as highly polyphyletic.

Type specimens of fossil “Architectibranchia” and Cephalaspidea (Mollusca, Heterobranchia) in the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia

The type specimens of fossil “Architectibranchia” and Cephalaspidea (Mollusca: Heterobranchia) deposited in the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia, USA, are listed herein. The collection

On the taxonomic position of Phaenomenella Fraussen & Hadorn, 2006 (Neogastropoda, Buccinoidea) with description of two new species

Molecular and morphological data revealed two still unnamed species of Phaenomenella from the lower bathyal zone of the South China Sea, and molecular phylogenetic analysis based on sequences of mitochondrial COI and nuclear 28S rRNA genes revealed close relationships with Siphonalia A. Adams both taxa forming a clade with maximal support.

Taxonomy and distribution of enigmatic “helicoid” Polygyratia Gray, 1847 (Gastropoda, Stylommatophora)

A taxonomic revision of the genus Polygyratia Gray is presented, with a new systematic placement in Scolodontidae and containing only the species polygyrata (Born, 1778), and an updated morphological description and geographical distribution is offered.

Taxonomic vandalism in malacology: comments on molluscan taxa recently described by N. N. Thach and colleagues (2014–2019)

All land snails described by Nguyen Ngoc Thach and colleagues are list and comment on, and 102 of their taxa are moved to the synonymies of previously described taxa.



A nomenclator of extant and fossil taxa of the Melanopsidae (Gastropoda, Cerithioidea)

Abstract This nomenclator provides details on all published names in the family-, genus-, and species-group, as well as for a few infrasubspecific names introduced for, or attributed to, the family

Evolution and Classification of Mesozoic Mathildoid Gastropods

About 150 Mesozoic species of the heterobranch superfamily Mathildoidea are classified into four families and 27 genera, and one new genus is described: Angulathilda gen. nov.

Prestonellinae-validation of the name as a new subfamily of Bothriembryontidae (Mollusca, Gastropoda, Orthalicoidea).

The affinities of the enigmatic South African land snail genus Prestonella Connolly, 1929 were discussed by Herbert (2007) and Herbert & Mitchell (2009), who showed, on the basis of morphological and

Introduction to Physidae (Gastropoda: Hygrophila); biogeography, classification, morphology.

The two established subfamilies of Physinae are divided into seven new tribes including 11 new genera, with diagnoses and lists of species referred to each, and the simplest reproductive system is found in Austrinauta of the Aplexinae.


This paper is offered both to validate the new subfamilies, genera, and subgenera utilized in the new edition of Dr. Myra KEEN's "Sea Shells of Tropical West America," and to present more fully my scheme of classification at the subfamily level, since this departs considerably from previous classifications.

Revision of the Australian species of Anatomidae (Mollusca: Gastropoda: Vetigastropoda)

The Australian members of the vetigastropod family Anatomidae are revised and two new species are described. The family has thus far been treated as a subfamily of Scissurellidae, but recent

Crosseolidae, a New Family of Skeneiform Microgastropods and Progress Toward Definition of Monophyletic Skeneidae

Abstract. Preliminary review of 130 available genus-group names for the notoriously polyphyletic group of skeneiform microgastropods has revealed a concentration of biodiversity in Australasia,

On the publication date, authorship, and type species of Umbraculum and Tylodina (Gastropoda: Opisthobranchia: Tylodinoidea): a rejoinder

It is recommended that Umbraculoiedea be accorded the status of nomen protectum (in favour of Tylodinoidea) for the monophyletic higher taxon (with the rank of superfamily in a Linnaean hierarchy) encompassing the families UmBRaculidae and Tylidinidae.

Molecular systematics of Hydrobiidae (Mollusca: Gastropoda: Rissooidea): testing monophyly and phylogenetic relationships

The cluster patterns in the combined 18S + COI tree as well as in the individual 18S and COI trees show that the Hydrobiidae of Kabat and Hershler (1993) are polyphyletic, which confirms previous studies suggesting that the Cochliopidae are a family distinct from the hydrobiidae.
