Origins of Semisulcospira libertina (gastropoda: semisulcospiridae) in Taiwan.

Mitochondrial DNA A DNA Mapp Seq Anal 2017 07 8;28(4):518-525. Epub 2016 Mar 8.

The most accepted hypothesis has suggested that the fauna in Taiwan Island originated from South China, but some studies supported the Japan, Ryukyu Archipelago, and Taiwan Islands as a unique biogeographical district. This study examines whether the populations of freshwater snail Semisulcospira libertina in Taiwan are closer to those in Japan based on the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) gene sequences. Our study shows the populations in North Taiwan originated from Japan and the cyclic glacial caused the migrations among islands and continent repeatedly; the populations in South Taiwan might originate from South China or South Asia.

Phylogenetic and taxonomic incongruence involving nuclear and mitochondrial markers in Korean populations of the freshwater snail genus Semisulcospira (Cerithioidea: Pleuroceridae).

Mol Phylogenet Evol 2007 May 25;43(2):386-97. Epub 2007 Feb 25.

Museum of Zoology and Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI 48109-1079, USA.

We investigated the population genetic structure and phylogenetic relationships of four morphospecies of Semisulcospira sampled from multiple South Korean drainages. One, S. extensa, displayed modest levels of genetic diversity and formed a species-specific clade for both mitochondrial (mt) and nuclear markers. Read More

Cercariae of a species of Philophthalmus detected in a freshwater snail, Semisulcospira libertina, in Japan.

Misako Urabe

Parasitol Int 2005 Mar 12;54(1):55-7. Epub 2005 Jan 12.

Department of Natural Sciences, Fukuoka University of Education, Akamabunkyo-machi 1-1, Munakata, Fukuoka 811-4192, Japan.

Cercariae belonging to the genus Philophthalmus (Digenea: Philophthalmidae) were detected in a freshwater snail Semisulcospira libertina collected from Innai Town, Oita Prefecture, Kyusyu, Japan. This is the first record of the cercaria of this genus from East Asia and from Semisulcospira. Daughter rediae and cercariae are briefly described and morphologically compared with similar but unidentified ones reported from Japan. Read More
