Taxonomic status of Stagnicola palustris (O. F. Muller, 1774) and S. turricula (Held, 1836) (Gastropoda: Pulmonata: Lymnaeidae) in view of new molecular and chorological data

Analyses of nucleotide sequences of 5’and 3’ends of mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase subunit I (5’COI, 3’COI) and fragments of internal transcribed spacer 2 (ITS2) of nuclear rDNA gene confirmed the status of Stagnicola corvus (Gmelin), Lymnaea stagnalis L. and Ladislavella terebra (Westerlund) as separate species. The same results showed that Stagnicola palustris (O. F. Mull.) and S. turricula (Held) could also be treated as separate species, but compared to the aforementioned lymnaeids, the… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Comparison of the species Sinanodonta amurensis Moskvicheva, 1973 and Sinanodonta primorjensis Bogatov et Zatrawkin, 1988 (Bivalvia: Unionidae: Anodontinae) in view of variability of the mitochondrial DNA cox1 gene and conchological features
It was shown on the basis of statistical analysis that the discussed taxa possess similar shells and similar genetic haplotypes, and the observed differences in DNA sequences of cox1 and shells relate to intraspecific genetic and geographical variation.

Since the last comprehensive overview of the Czech and Slovak mollusc fauna, released in 2013, several records of species new for the countries or particular regions have appeared. In this paper, we


Taxonomy of European Lymnaeidae (Gastropoda: Pulmonata) in studies with the use of molecular biology techniques. I. Preliminary view on the subgenus Stagnicola Leach, 1830 on the basis of RAPD analysis
The random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) technique was used to study genomic relationships of five lymnaeid species and supports the discrimination of all taxa as separate species which was suggested by the structure of their reproductive organs.
Ribosomal DNA ITS-1 sequence analysis of European Stagnicoline Lymnaeidae (Gastropoda)
The ITS-1 proved to be a good marker for genus, species, subspecies and population differentation and relationships in stagnicolines, and results suggest thatITS-1 may evolve somewhat faster than ITS-2 in Lymnaeidae.
RAPD markers as a tool for analysis of relationships among selected species of Lymnaeidae (Gastropoda: Pulmonata)
RAPD markers are useful for analyses of taxonomic relationships within the Lymnaeidae and confirm the specific status of L. stagnalis, S. corvus and S. occulta as distinct species or subspecies.
Relationships among problematic North American stagnicoline snails (Pulmonata: Lymnaeidae) reinvestigated using nuclear ribosomal DNA internal transcribed spacer sequences
The taxonomic relationships among four stagnicoline snail species from North America were reassessed by analysing nucleotide sequences from their nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region, demonstrating the usefulness of these sequences for distinguishing species from closely related lymnaeid subgenera.

Bythinella Moquin-Tandon, 1856 (Gastropoda: Rissooidea: Bythinellidae) in Romania: species richness in a glacial refugium
The occurrence of six species, each with a low haplotype number and high interspecific differences between haplotypes, is explained by: a relatively long history of Bythinella in the territory of a Pleistocene glacial refugium, promoting speciation, but local extinction and subsequent recolonization.
Characterisation of Lymnaea cubensis, L. viatrix and L. neotropica n. sp., the main vectors of Fasciola hepatica in Latin America, by analysis of their ribosomal and mitochondrial DNA
The genetic distances observed and the results of phylogenetic analyses demonstrate that two different species exist within L. viatrix, indicating that the snails investigated may cover more than one supraspecific taxon.
