  author={M. Oliverio},
  journal={Zoologica Scripta},
On the basis of foregut anatomy and embryonic/larval shell morphology, the radula‐less conoidean gastropod genus Clathromangelia Monterosato, 1884 is transferred to the subfamily Daphnellinae (family Turridae). The Lower Pliocene to Recent species arc reviewed. The type species is Pleurotoma granum Philippi, 1844, Recent from Sicily. C. quadrillum Dujardin, 1837 a fossil species described from the Miocene (and ranging to the Lower Pliocene) is here considered a distinct species, with… Expand
Toxoglossan gastropods of the subfamily Crassispirinae (Turridae) lacking a radula, and a discussion of the status of the subfamily Zemaciinae
It is concluded that similar foregut arrangement appeared independently in both lineages, and doubts are expressed concerning the importance of these characters in establishing a new taxon of subfamilial rank and therefore the validity of the subfamily Zemaciinae. Expand
A taxonomic review of the Norwegian species of Raphitoma (Gastropoda: Conoidea: Raphitomidae)
The problematic conoidean genus Raphitoma s.l. in inshore Norwegian waters is revised based on fresh material from all along the coast of Norway, and some easily observable behaviour and soft part morphology features were found to be promising areas for further studies. Expand
An assessment of Raphitoma and allied genera (Neogastropoda: Raphitomidae)
The systematics of several Eastern Atlantic conoidean species, traditionally ascribed to the genus Raphitoma Bellardi, 1847, are revised on the basis of DNA sequence data from three gene regionsExpand
Marine molluscs from Cyprus: new data and checklist
A total amount of 696 species is here reported in a newly formed checklist of Molluscs of Cyprus, considering all the previous works concerned about the malacological fauna occurring in the area under investigation and the additional species the authors have identified. Expand
Lower Pliocene gastropod assemblages from northwestern France: Palaeoceanographic and palaeobiogeographic implications
Abstract Upper Miocene to Pleistocene assemblages of northwestern France are commonly grouped as Redonian faunas. Although earlier authors recognized their diverse and heterochronic character,Expand
Anatomy of accessory rhynchodeal organs of Veprecula vepratica and Tritonoturris subrissoides : new types of foregut morphology in Raphitominae ( Conoidea )
Anatomy of anterior part of digestive system in two representatives of the subfamily Raphitominae, Veprecula vepratica and Tritonoturris subrissoides has been studied. V. vepratica possesses full setExpand
The family Raphitomidae (Mollusca: Gastropoda: Conoidea) in the Greek Seas with the description of two new species
The Hellenic Raphitomidae biodiversity is enriched by 10 new records, out of which, two are new species, one is new record for the Mediterranean Sea, and four for the East basin. Expand
Anatomy of accessory rhynchodeal organs of Veprecula vepratica and Tritonoturris subrissoides: new types of foregut morphology in Raphitominae (Conoidea)
Foregut morphology of apparently representing new types of foregut organization for Raphitominae is described, and the possible functioning of these organs is discus- sed in comparison to analogous structures found in other conoideans. Expand

Radula Tooth Structure of Eight Bithyniid Snails Observed by Scanning Electron Microscopy
Teeth of all species studied had symmetrical structure, i.e. a total of seven teeth (one central tooth, and one lateral and two pairs of marginal teeth on each side) in each row were observed, and the basic tooth formula of eight bithyniids was 2:1-1:1:2. Expand


Turridae (Mollusca: Gastropoda) of southern Africa and Mozambique. Part 3. Subfamily Borsoniinae
Eleven genera of Borsoniinae occur in southern Africa and Mozambique. Of these, one genus (Tropidoturris, type-species Pleurotoma scitecostata Sowerby, 1903) is new; another (Mitrel/atoma Powell,Expand
Notes on Ptychobela and Brachytoma, with the description of a new species from Mozambique (Mollusca: Gastropoda: Turridae)
The type species of Brachytoma Swainson, 1840, Pleurotoma strombiformis Sowerby, 1839 is considered a nomen dubium, and the genus and subfamily Brachytominae Thiele, 1929, must be rejected as of doubtful application. Expand

This paper is offered both to validate the new subfamilies, genera, and subgenera utilized in the new edition of Dr. Myra KEEN's "Sea Shells of Tropical West America," and to present more fully my scheme of classification at the subfamily level, since this departs considerably from previous classifications.
