Pseudunela

provided by wikipedia EN

Pseudunela is a genus of minute sea slugs, acochlidians, shell-less marine or temporary brackish or brackish gastropod mollusks in the clade Acochlidiacea.

Pseudunela is the only genus in the family Pseudunelidae.[1] Pseudunela is the type genus of the family Pseudunelidae.[5]

Taxonomy

Pseudunelidae was placed within the superfamily Strubellioidea in the taxonomy of Bouchet & Rocroi (2005).[5]

Pseudunelidae was subsequently placed within the (unranked) Hedylopsacea by Schrödl & Neusser (2010).[1]

Species

These are the different species in the genus Pseudunela:[6]

  • Pseudunela cornuta (Challis, 1970) - type species of the genus Pseudunela, marine and temporary brackish[4]
  • Pseudunela eirene Wawra, 1988 - The description of Pseudunela eirene is brief and based on a single specimen with ganglia of the nervous system and stylets of copulatory organs studied on a whole-mount by light microscopy only. No histological sections were made, and the radula was studied light-microscopically after dissolving the soft parts and stylets. Information on other organ systems is absent, and no further specimens are available for study.[7] Marine species.[8]
  • Pseudunela espiritusanta Neusser & Schrödl, 2009[8] This species from Espiritu Santo Island in Vanuatu lives in brackish water[8]
  • Pseudunela marteli Neusser, Jörger & Schrödl, 2011 - marine[4]
  • Pseudunela viatoris Neusser, Jörger & Schrödl, 2011 - marine[4]
