Summary The present classification of the New Zealand Onchidiidae into six species is shown to be incorrect. Three of the species, Onchidella patelloides (Quoy and Gaimard), O. irrorata (Gould), O. obscura (Plate), have insufficient differences for separation. They are reclassified under the species name Onchidella nigricans (Quoy and Gaimard). Both O. flavescens (Wissel) and O. campbelli (Filhol) possess sufficient distinctive features for classification as species. The distribution of the… 
Review of the current knowledge of the systematics of Onchidiidae (Mollusca: Gastropoda: Pulmonata) with a checklist of nominal species
A checklist of all 143 species names available in Onchidiidae is provided, as a first step towards a systematic revision of systematics of this taxon.
Review of the geographic distribution of Hoffmannola hansi (Gastropoda: Pulmonata) in the Mexican Pacific
Hoffmannola hansi (Mexican intertidal leather slug) is traditionally reported as an endemic species to theGulf of California, Mexico. However, its presence in the southern Mexican Pacific has been
[Preliminary classification and phylogenetic relationship among Onchidiidae in China inferred from 18S rRNA partial sequence].
The phylogenetic trees indicated that the nine populations of Onchidiidae can be divided into four subgroups, Peronia, Onchidium, Platevindex and Paraoncidium, and Peronia has the highest confidence level in clustering.
Direct development in the intertidal South American shell-less Onchidella marginata (Couthouy in Gould, 1852) (Gastropoda: Heterobranchia: Onchidiidae)
Evidence of complete encapsulated development of Onchidella marginata for the first time in South America is shown.
Transoceanic genetic similarities of kelp‐associated sea slug populations: long‐distance dispersal via rafting?
Contrary to previous taxonomic views that classify these Southern Ocean Onchidella populations as at least three separate species, the genetic data suggest that the studied populations belong to a single taxon, whose distribution is widespread.
Experimental ecology and hibernation of Onchidium struma (Gastropoda: Pulmonata: Systellommatophora)
The analysis showed that the temperature is an essential factor affecting movement and feeding of O. struma and that RH and light intensity also play an important role, but are not necessarily required at the same time.
The ultrastructure and histology of the perinotal epidermis and defensive glands of two species of Onchidella (Gastropoda: Pulmonata).
The structural similarity of these glands to those of siphonariids, suggest that they have a common ancestry.
The Marine Benthic Ecology and Biogeography
In 1960 I reviewed the littoral ecology and biogeography of the southern oceans (Knox, 1960) and three years later the biogeography and intertidal ecology of the Australasia coasts (Knox, 1963). In a
Evolutionary biogeography and patterns of dispersal in the intertidal slug Onchidella (Systellomatophora: Mollusca)
It is suggested that within the context of a youth-services agency using a mobile application, using a tablet or computer to manage social media accounts is a viable process.


Embryology of the New Zealand Onchidiidae and its Bearing on the Classification of the Group
It is rather surprising to find, in a group that could throw some light on the origin of Opisthobranchs and Pulmonates, that the embryology of only one species, Onchidella celtica Forbes and Hanley, has been examined.
Intertidal zonation of the exposed rocky shores of Victoria, together with a rearrangement of the biogeographical provinces of temperate Australian shores
A rearrangement of the biogeographical provinces of the Australian littoral is made, and a new Cool-temperate fauna and flora are recognized on the coast of Victoria.
Studies in the Functional Morphology and Embryology of Onchidella Celtica (Forbes and Hanley) and their Bearing on its Relationships
Feeding experiments suggest that the digestive cells of the gland absorb only fluid, and the distensible crop and stomach afford ample storage space for the food.

This contribution is concerned with the littoral ecology and biogeography of the southern oceans, and at the outset I would like to define its scope. I have used the term littoral in a broad sense,
A Study of Certain Aspects of the Ecology of the Inter-Tidal Zone of the New South Wales Coast
This paper is the result of an ecological study pursued for several years and extending over the entire length of the New South Wales coast. It is not a systematic investigation of one limited
