In order to further resolve the phylogenetic relationships within Caenogastropoda, the complete mitochondrial (mt) genomes of Cochlostoma hidalgoi (Cyclophoroidea), Naticarius hebraeus (Naticoidea), Galeodea echinophora (Tonnoidea), and Columbella adansoni (Buccinoidea), and the partial mt genome of Erosaria spurca (Cypraeoidea) were sequenced. All newly determined mt genomes conformed to the cons ...

- ... Imposex is the development of male features in female prosobranch gastropods, caused by organotin compounds. In the Mexican Pacific coast, imposex was observed in Plicopurpura pansa. This snail has been used by indigenous people to dye cotton and traditional fabric clothing. During 2010 and 2011, 5 habitats were visited along the coastline of Nayarit and Sinaloa, Mexico. At low tide, 675 snails we ...
