Isla de la Juventud is the largest island (2,200 km2) of the Canarreos Archipelago, Greater Antilles. A checklist of terrestrial molluscs re- corded from Sierra Bibijagua is presented, including the following information: synonymy, type locality, updat- ed distribution, endemism, and photographs of shells and living individuals whenever possible. e checklist comprises 12 families and 16 genera currently known from the area, including six new records: Farcimen pro- cer, Leidyula oridana, Liguus fasciatus, Subulina octona, Glandinella poeyana, and Bradybaena similaris”.
