Similar relationships and exponents have been reported previously for the same species (Randall, 1964) and in other gastropods such as Buccinum
undatum (Kideys, 1998), Haliotis fulgens (Farias et al., 2003), Lymnaea stagnalis (Zonneveld & Kooijman, 1989), Nerita peloronta, N.
2012) and Buccinum
undatum (whelk) (Mclntyre et al.
politum Lamarck, 1822: 269 (non Roding, 1789).
Influence of predation on shell morphology of Buccinum
Behaviour and timing of copulation and egg-laying in the neogastropod Buccinum
Size of maturity of the common whelk, Buccinum
undatum: is the minimum landing size in England too low?
Reproductive cycle and seasonal feeding activity of the neogastropod Buccinum
For example, Smith and Thatje (2013) found large size differences among siblings developing inside capsules in the whelk Buccinum
undatum, including some embryos that had not consumed nurse eggs.
Replacement name for Buccinum
clathratum Adams & Reeve, 1850 [non Kiener, 1834].
(2004) reported that striae form annually on the operculum of Buccinum
isaotakii and can be used to estimate age.
En el Mar de Bering, por ejemplo, los caracoles de los generos Neptunea y Buccinum
soportan una alta presion pesquera desde principios de los 70's (MacIntosh 1980).
