List of non-marine molluscs of Slovakia

Slovakia is a land-locked country, and therefore the molluscs of Slovakia are all land and freshwater species. There are 247[1] species of molluscs living in the wild in Slovakia. In addition there are 9 gastropod species living only in greenhouses.[2]

Location of Slovakia

There are a total of 219[1] species of gastropods, which breaks down to 51[1] species of freshwater gastropods, and 168[1] species of land gastropods, plus 28[1] species of bivalves living in the wild.

There are 8 non-indigenous gastropod species (3 freshwater and 5 land species) and 3 species of bivalves in the wild in Slovakia. This is a total of 6 freshwater non-indigenous species of wild molluscs.

HistoryEdit

Grid distribution maps of all species were made by Lisický (1991).[3]

A faunal list by Čejka et al. (2007)[2] included 245 species. A list by Horsák et al. (2010) included 247 species.[1]
