A New Generic Placement for “Calliostoma” Blakei Clench & Aguayo, 1938 (Gastropoda: Trochoidea)

The species is characterized by a bipectinate ctenidium with short afferent membrane, isolated appendices in the left side of the neck, and the rachidian and the first lateral teeth reduced to their base, leading to the new genus Carolesia for this species.

Morphological phylogeny of the Tegulinae (Mollusca: Vetigastropoda) reinforces a Turbinidae position

The authors' morphological data provide a solid foundation for ensuing systematic research on Tegulinae, as well as Trochoidea, and evidence facilitating the diagnosis of generic and suprageneric groups.

Comparative Morphology and Redescription of Three Species of Calliostoma (Gastropoda, Trochoidea) from Brazilian Coast

The morphology of Calliostoma adspersum, C. depictum and C. hassler, from the Brazilian coast, were studied in detail and it is concluded that C. vinosum is a synonym of C.Hasler, because specimens identifiable as both species occur within a single ontogenetic series.
