Delimitation and phylogenetics of the diverse land-snail family Urocoptidae (Gastropoda: Pulmonata) based on 28S rRNA sequence data: a reunion with Cerion
Data from an independent dataset of 28S rRNA DNA-sequence data provide strong support for a North American/ circum-Caribbean clade, to be named Urocoptoidea (new superfamily), which consists of the families Urocoptidae and Cerionidae, and consequences for taxonomy and implications for evolutionary research are discussed.
A review of Aulacospira Möllendorff, 1890 and Pseudostreptaxis Möllendorff, 1890 in the Philippines (Gastropoda, Pupilloidea, Hypselostomatidae)
Three new species are described in the genera Aulacospira and Pseudostreptaxis of the Philippines based on the collections of the Senckenberg Forschungsinstitut und Naturmuseum, the Florida Museum of Natural History, and recently collected material.
Revision of the Afrotropical Land Snail Genus Avakubia Pilsbry, 1919, with Description of Pseudavakubia Gen. n. and Eleven New Species (Gastropoda: Pulmonata: Streptaxidae)
The genital anatomy of both Avakubia and Pseudavkubia is found to deviate from most other members of the family Streptaxidae in the absence of chitinous spines in the penis.
Phylogenetic relationships and classification of Solaropsidae (Gastropoda: Stylommatophora)
The authors' analysis supports a monophyletic Solaropsidae within Sagdoidea, as well as its internal division into Solaropsinae and Caracolinae, and Epiphragmophoridae (formerly a subfamily of Xanthonychidae) is supported as a distinct family-level clade within Helicoidea.
An Eocene land snail Balticopta gusakovi gen.n., sp.n. (Stylommatophora: Gastrocoptidae) from Baltic amber
A monotypic genus from Priabonian (late Eocene) Baltic amber that has a moderately small (1.3x2.1 mm), ovate-conic shell with a large free aperture extended to the wall of the penultimate whorl and at least one simple angular lamella is present relatively deep in the aperture.
The Phenomenon of Organ Reduction in the Evolution of Pulmonate Mollusks
It is assumed that, during evolution, morphological isolating mechanisms are replaced by less energy-consuming ethological, biochemical, and physiological mechanisms that stimulate the reduction of the accessory organs of the reproductive tract.
Molecular phylogeny and systematics of Acrotoma (Gastropoda: Clausiliidae) from the Caucasus
The radiation of the Acrotoma species in the Pliocene and Quaternary might have been triggered by the orogenesis of the Greater Caucasus, which created habitats, such as canyons and alpine environments, to which the Ac Rotoma species adapted.

It was concluded that Mauritian Gibbinae is represented by a single genus Gibbus Montfort, 1810 with four subgenera ( Gonospira Swainson, 1840, Plicadomus swainson 1840, Gonidomus Swains on 1840, and Gibbus s. str.).
The Enidae of Timor (Stylommatophora: Orthurethra)
The systematic classification of the Enidae of Timor is reviewed by means of comparative morphology and molecular phylogenetics using recently collected land snail samples from Timor-Leste to confirm the placement of the previously named species Apoecus apertus in the En family.
Family Helicidae excluding Helicinae ( Gastropoda Pulmonata ) : morphology , taxonomy , and a catalogue of taxa
Special attention is paid to the morphology of the atrial stimulator and, especially, penial papilla, because these organs play an important role in evolution of helicoid groups, providing the functioning of a pre-copulatory isolating mechanism.
