The point on Opaliopsis atlantis (Gastropoda: Epitoniidae) distribution: new data from the Mediterranean and implications

It is suggested that this cnidarian-ectoparasitic prosobranch of Opaliopsis atlantis could adapt to different hosts, as a strategy that may enhance its wide biogeographic distribution.

Taxonomy of Nystiellidae (Caenogastropoda, Epitonioidea) from Brazil, with description of three new species from the South-western Atlantic

A taxonomic revision of the Nystiellidae from Brazil, including samples from the Rio Grande Rise, South Atlantic, was performed based on shell morphology, and the richest genus, Eccliseogyra, the three species previously recorded from Brazil were revised.

Early Cretaceous Small-Sized Gastropods from the Shallow Marine Deposits of the Kimigahama Formation, Choshi Group, Japan

Twelve species of small gastropods are extracted using the sodium tetraphenylborate method from the strongly lithified shallow marine deposits of the Barremian (Lower Cretaceous) Kimigahama Formation of the Choshi Group, central Japan, suggesting that the sinistral triphorids originated from the dextral ancestor.
