Nicaraguan biodiversity

López et al. (2015) have added a paper on the poorly known malacolofauna of Nicaragua, in which they report on a study of land and freshwater snails in a nature reserve in southern Nicaragua. This lake and the surrounding area lies in a volcanic district, and their inventory totalled up to more than 14,000 specimens belonging to 77 species. They found five species that might be new to science, but didn’t describe these.


The paper includes two tables, one with the collected samples per family, the second with the species listed alphabetically.
