Hi, I’m Bram Breure, a Dutch malacologist who is interested in Neotropical land snails since the early 1970s. Having specialized in one of the big groups from that region, the superfamily Orthalicoidea, I have also been doing research on the Australian and Polynesian members; the Orthalicoidea have radiated from the ancient continent Gondwana and also occur in southernmost Africa. Other interests are e.g., biohistory and phylogeography, on which I occasionally will also devote a blogpost. But from time to time I will also write on other tidbits that caught my interest.

Currently I’m a Research Associate of Naturalis Biodiversity Center in Leiden, the Netherlands, and also for the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences in Brussels, Belgium and the Natural History Museum, London, U.K.

My ORCID is 0000-0001-9357-0501.

      Unfortunately there is only a list of names available at the moment, but – together with a colleague – we are working on something more substantial (illustrations + other data).
      May take a while to have this finished though…

    I look forward to it.

    I’m particularly interested in Epiphragmophorids. I’m examining Sonorella, which are eerily similar to Epiphragmophora. Do you have more photos of those?

    Warm regards

        Has anyone sequenced mitochondrial genes in Epiphragmophora? It would be very interesting to see how related they are to Helminthoglyptids.
