Abstract New phylogenies of endemic Pectinidae of the Galápagos Islands allow their endemic status to be assessed relevant to the relict theory of insular endemism. Nodipecten magnificus and Leopecten isabelensis n. sp. are neoendemic species that evolved in the Pliocene from ancestors in the tropical eastern Pacific and more remote ancestors in the Tertiary Caribbean Province before closure of transisthmian seaways. Spathochlamys vestalis, an eastern Pacific species whose incipiently… 

Pectinoidea (Bivalvia: Propeamussiidae and Pectinidae) from the Panglao region, Philippine Islands

TLDR
It is found that, even though most species within species groups commonly feed on plants from one family, shifts to a distantly related host family have occasionally occurred throughout the phylogeny and such shifts are most commonly observed towards Betulaceae.

A new Lyropecten (Pectinidae, Bivalvia, Mollusca) from the central California Miocene, USA

Author(s): Powell, II, Charles L.; Millard, Cheryl D.; Garcia, Christine | Abstract: A new pectinid, Lyropecten terrysmithae n. sp., has been recognized in middle to late Miocene rock units referred

Predominant east to west colonizations across major oceanic barriers: Insights into the phylogeographic history of the hydroid superfamily Plumularioidea, suggested by a mitochondrial DNA barcoding marker

TLDR
Preliminary insights into the global phylogeographic and evolutionary patterns across species of the hydrozoan superfamily Plumularioidea are provided, including thermal tolerance, population sizes, dispersal strategies, oceanic currents, substrate preference, and land barriers are important factors for dispersal and speciation of marine hydroids.

TLDR
The present distributions are explicable if ancestors survived as metapopulations occupying both the Galápagos hotspot and other regions before differentiating, more or less in situ.

Description of a New Genus and Species of Scallop (Mollusca: Bivalvia: Pectinidae) from the Upper Cenozoic of North Carolina

ABSTRACT A new genus and species, Patriciapecten iona, are described in the subfamily Chlamydinae (Mollusca: Bivalvia: Pectinidae). Patriciapecten is characterized by a shell with commarginal ledges

MODERN BENTHIC FORAMINIFERA OF THE GULF OF MEXICO: A CENSUS REPORT

TLDR
A new literature survey, based on 157 publications, documents the presence of 987 extant species of benthic foraminifera in the Gulf of Mexico, with a pattern of species distribution that does not fit either the ubiquity model or the moderate endemicity model proposed for the biogeography of protists.

Historical biogeography of the Isthmus of Panama

TLDR
As a sea barrier, the isthmus induced divergent environmental change off its two coasts—creating contrasting ecosystems through differential extinction and diversification.

Fossils, phylogenies, and the challenge of preserving evolutionary history in the face of anthropogenic extinctions

TLDR
Simulation and empirical analyses show that the conceptual difference in how ages are estimated from the stratigraphic record versus molecular phylogenies does not preclude comparisons of age selectivities of past and present extinctions.

The Evolution of Chlamys lMolluscac Bivalviac Pectinidaer in the Tropical Western Atlantic and Eastern Pacific

TLDR
The results suggest that: (1) eurytopy bestows resistance to both extinction and spéciation; (2) long-distance dispersal facilitates allopatric spécia­ tion but so also does lecithotrophy in reef habitats; (3) evolution within som e scallop clades has been very rapid; and (4) gene flow betw een Berm uda and the Antilles was interrupted during the late Pleistocene.

TERTIARY MARINE MOLLUSCAN ASSEMBLAGES OF EASTERN PATAGONIA (ARGENTINA): A BIOSTRATIGRAPHIC ANALYSIS

Abstract Pectinids are the most abundant and widely distributed taxa in the Tertiary marine beds of Patagonia. Along with other very common molluscan species, they characterize five assemblages, from

The family Pectinidae in South Africa and Mozambique (Mollusca: Bivalvia: Pectinoidea)

Of the 29 species of Pectinidae here recorded from South Africa and Mozambique, ca. 76% have IndoWest Pacific origins, 17% are of Mediterranean-West African origin and ca. 7% are probably of Southern

TLDR
This paper divides these relicts into three main types, suggested that type 1 relicts are of Miocene age, and discusses its explanatory power to account for patterns of endemism, and more generally, taxonomic and geographical patterns of biodiversity.
