A new Lilloiconcha species

Micro mollusks are a neglected group (and not only in the Neotropics!). Araya & Aliaga (2015) have just described a new species of Lilloiconcha from Chile. It is L. lopezi from Region de Valparaiso, La Ligua, Los Molles.


The type material has been split between the Santa Barbara museum (holo- and 3 paratypes) and the Museo Paleontological de Caldera in Chile.
