In this paper new data on the systematics, phylogeny, and trophic ecology of Bullacta exarata (Philippi, 1849) are presented. B. exarata is a cephalaspidean gastropod endemic to the China Sea that lives in estuaries along the north-eastern Chinese and western South Korean coastlines. The systematic position of this species is controversial and has been a matter of continuous debate. Therefore, in order to produce new insights into the phylogenetic position of this species, morphological and… Expand
The systematics and phylogeny of Haminoeidae (Mollusca, Cephalaspidea), with special focus on the taxonomy and phylogeny of the genus Haloa sensu lato
TLDR
This thesis aims to resolve the taxonomy and systematics of the family and genera of the Haminoeidae based on an integrative approach using a combination of molecular phylogenetic analyses using the mitochondrial genes cytochrome c oxidase subunit I, 12S rRNA, 16S r RNA, and Histone 3 coupled with morpho-anatomical data. Expand
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. Expand
Historical Refugia and Isolation by Distance of the Mud Snail, Bullacta exarata (Philippi, 1849) in the Northwestern Pacific Ocean
TLDR
The consistent significant patterns of isolation by distance of both COI and microsatellites suggests that limited mobility of adults and short planktonic stage of larvae may have played an important role in promoting or maintaining the genetic differentiation of B. exarata. Expand
Beyond shells: first detailed morphological description of the mangrove-associated gastropod Haminoea cf. fusca (A. Adams, 1850) (Cephalaspidea, Haminoeidae), with a COI phylogenetic analysis
TLDR
A Bayesian COI gene tree including specimens from Pakistan and the Philippines together with other Indo-Pacific and Atlantic lineages was inferred and the possible existence of more than one species under the name H. fusca is highlighted and discussed. Expand
Systematic revision, diversity patterns and trophic ecology of the tropical Indo-West Pacific sea slug genus Phanerophthalmus A. Adams, 1850 (Cephalaspidea, Haminoeidae)
TLDR
The goals of this study are to revise the systematics of Phanerophthalmus, infer its phylogeny and patterns of diversity, as well as study its diet, which suggests these slugs feed on diatoms. Expand
A molecular phylogeny of the gastropod family Haminoeidae sensu lato (Heterobranchia: Cephalaspidea): a generic revision
TLDR
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. Expand
Systematic revision of the Indo-West Pacific colourful bubble-snails of the genus Lamprohaminoea Habe, 1952 (Cephalaspidea : Haminoeidae)
TLDR
This work revise the diversity and systematics of Lamprohaminoea species based on a phylogenetic hypothesis and on a detailed morphological analysis of specimens, finding that three species are new to science and can be separated by subtle differences of their external colouration and by features of the male reproductive system. Expand
Diversity and systematics of Haminoeidae gastropods (Heterobranchia: Cephalaspidea) in the tropical West Pacific Ocean: new data on the genera Aliculastrum, Atys, Diniatys and Liloa.
TLDR
Four genera of Haminoeidae gastropods inhabiting the tropical West Pacific were studied based on the combined analyses of live animals, external morphology, anatomy and shells aided by scanning electron microscopy and molecular sequencing. Expand
Isolation of fourteen novel polymorphic microsatellite markers for alien or invasive species: monitoring and management of the mud snail Bullacta exarata Philippi, 1849
TLDR
14 novel polymorphic microsatellite loci were isolated from the mud snail, and characterized in wild stock from Laizhou Bay of China, finding they will be useful for population genetics, alien and invasive species identification, parentage studies of this species. Expand
Revised Classification, Nomenclator and Typification of Gastropod and Monoplacophoran Families

Reassessment of the trophic position of Bullidae (Gastropoda: Cephalaspidea) and the importance of diet in the evolution of cephalaspidean gastropods
TLDR
Herbivory was found to be the plesiomorphic condition, with carnivory having arisen independently two or three times, which suggests that dietary specialization has played a major role in the adaptive radiation of the Bullidae. Expand
