The fast attack by Scaphella junonia on Americoliva sayana was filmed in captivity. Volutidae described in the literature first envelop their prey with the foot, ingesting them in the "foot chamber" thus formed. Scaphella junonia first attack prey in open water, then may use foot to move them around. [Published on 2018-08-28 in the "Fast Track" sec...

The veliconcha larva of the predatory gastropod Conus spurius Gmelin, 1791 is described and for the first time illustrated based on material from Sanibel Island, Florida. Hatchling veliconchas were 1470–1570 μm (mean = 1530) long, with first protoconch whorl maximum diameter 670–740 μm (mean = 710), and estimated egg diameter 570 μm. Veliconchas ca...

In the hyperdiverse neogastropod genus Conus, most of the ~700 extant species whose diets in nature are known are rather specialized predators on marine worms, mainly polychaete annelids, that they paralyze with neurotoxic venoms and then swallow whole. These vermivorous species are scattered throughout recent species-level molecular phylogenetic t...

Collections of Chiroteuthis from New Zealand waters are reviewed for the first time. The distribution of available material spans 24˚45–45˚25.7'S, 163˚29.3'E–165˚13.75'W, depths 0–2000 m, with collections comprising 60 specimens attributed to three species, C. mega (3 specimens), C. spoeli (1 specimen from New Zealand waters, 2 additional specimens...
