New Eucalodium from Belize

At the end of the year, it is ‘rainy season’ for malacological papers. One from Thompson & Dourson (2013) describes a new species from Belize, Eucalodium belizensis. It is the first species of this genus reported from this country, where it was found in the Toledo District, north of San José.

The holotype is in the Florida States Museum, UF 44972.
