A New Cleaning Method for Accurate Examination of Freshwater Gastropod Shell Specimens Covered with Iron-rich Deposits
Sodium hypochlorite has been used for cleaning specimens of freshwater and brackish water snails that are covered with deposits. Our experiments using specimens of two freshwater snail species,
Soft Part 3D visualization by serial sectioning and computer reconstruction
TLDR
A practical guide covering all procession steps beginning with anesthetization leading to the fi nal goal, 3D visualization of specimens, is provided, and the interpolate function is emphasized as most useful for completion of segmentation and also correction works.
Land snail diversity in Brazil
TLDR
There is still a long way to go until the authors have a good understanding of the terrestrial gastropod fauna in Brazil, as land snails are deemed one of the animal groups most vulnerable to extinction, and the overly-exploited natural environments in Brazil might not last long, especially considering the country's recent environmentally harmful policies.
Severnsia strombeulima n. gen. & sp. from Hawaii (Mollusca, Gastropoda: Caenogastropoda: Eulimidae).
TLDR
A striking new genus and species of a microsnail is reported from Hawaii, one of the generally under-represented micromollusks in that region.
Using microwaves to prepare gastropods for DNA barcoding
TLDR
A method traditionally used to clean shells that involves placing the living gastropods in a microwave (MW) oven is experimented with, resulting in higher percentage of DNA extraction success and a three‐ to fivefold increase in productivity compared with other methods.
A new species of Haploptychius Möllendorff, 1906 (Stylommatophora: Streptaxidae) from the Western Ghats, India
TLDR
The new species has unique genital anatomy in having a long penis with a penial sheath, the presence of penial appendix, penial hooks, atrium and vagina with longitudinal ridges and irregular transverse ridges respectively, but without any hooks.
UvA-DARE Genomic variability and population structure in shelled pteropods
TLDR
The present study provides new genom­ ic resources for pteropods and supports the use of target capture­based pro­ tocols to efficiently characterise genomic variation in small non­model organisms with large genomes.
Sample preparation of glochidial shells (Bivalvia, Unionidae) for scanning electron microscopy
TLDR
The interactions of chemicals used for the storage of glochidia and dissolution ofglochidial tissue are described and the techniques for cleaning and mounting the glochidials shells of Unionidae for investigations by SEM are compared.
AN ECOLOGICAL ASSESSMENT OF MAJOR GROUPS OF FAUNAL BIODIVERSITY IN GAHIRMATHA MARINE WILDLIFE SANCTUARY, ODISHA, EAST COAST OF INDIA
The present work carried out, under the aegis of project on sea turtle funded by the ‘Wildlife Institute of India’, Dehradun that executed in Odisha coast and this project assist to carry out the
Five new species of the land snail genus Landouria Godwin-Austen, 1918 (Gastropoda, Camaenidae) from northeastern Thailand, with note on genitalia and radula morphology of Landouria diplogramma (Möllendorff, 1902)
Five new species of the terrestrial snail genus Landouria Godwin-Austen, 1918 (Camaenidae) are described from northeastern Thailand, based on shell features, radular morphology, genital anatomy, and
