Abstract Apple snails (Ampullariidae) belong to a diversified freshwater family which occurs in pan- tropical habitats. The Indian apple snail, Pila globosaand other operculate snails are grouped in Architaenioglossa which also includes Viviparidae and Cyclophoridae.
Hence, the molecular phylogenetic relationships of two families inhabiting freshwater streams viz., Ampullariidae and Viviparidae considering the genera dwelling in Indian subcontinent namely Pila globosa and Bellamya bengalensis using the partial nucleotide sequence of mitochondrial COI gene were of considerable importance in building conservational strategies.
Abstract Ampullariidae comprises two lineages of freshwater gastropods: one Old World and one New World. Recent molecular work confirmed the monophyly of the family and began to clarify generic relationships, but current systematics remains unsatisfactory.Learn More
Familiar groups include the littorines (Littorinidae), cowries (Cypraeidae), creepers (Cerithiidae, Batellariidae, and Potamididae), worm snails (Vermetidae), moon snails (Naticidae), frog shells (Ranellidae and Bursidae), apple snails (Ampullariidae) and a large, almost entirely marine group of about 20 families that are all carnivores belonging to the clade Neogastropoda.Learn More
Classification essay examples usually have bodies that are composed of a minimum of three paragraphs where every paragraph is supposed to talk about another category. You can begin by expounding on the criteria used for each of the classes while also talking about their various strengths and weak points. While doing all the above, it is prudent.Learn More

Land snails and slugs breathe with a kind of lung.They used to be put together in a group, the Pulmonata.

Ampullariidae and Viviparidae, were included to facilitate the placement of additional fossils. Two ampullariid species, Pila polita and Pomacea bridgesii, were selected to cover the maximum distance within the family (Hayes et al., 2009). Two species were.

The family Aplustridae, occurring in the waters of Singapore, is reviewed. The family is represented in Singapore waters by Hydatina albocincta and Hydatina zonata. Diagnoses, figures, records, and other information on both species are provided as part of an effort to document the diversity of the malacofauna in Singapore.Learn More
