Today I talked to Philippe Kok in Brussels, who is doing research on frogs from Pantepui. He collected some snails, including this small one from Apacar?? tepui, found in bromeliads.
We discussed about his observations and compared the pattern of results both for frogs and for snails. Although frogs are probably more agile than snails, the patterns found so far are remarkably similar. Strong ties between the Andes and Pantepui, but the species found on the tepuis seem relatively ‘young’.
Another explorer (and a generalist one) is Charles Brewer, who talks about exploring in three short videos (links below). Not only about exploration in the jungle but also in other fields. “Keep on exploring, keep on discovering”. New plants (see the third video) and possibly this snail too.
