Just published: a paper on Peruvian Drymaeus species with description of a new species by Mogollón & Breure.
The abstract reads: “Critical remarks are made on Drymaeus species, reported from Peru in a study on land snails from National Parks at the eastern side of the Andes. Four of these species (Drymaeus multilineatus, D. coniformis, D. glaucostomus, all known from Venezuela or Central America, and D. geometricus, known from Colombia) appear to be misidentified as Peruvian species, which thus may lead to incorrect biogeographical interpretations. Correct identifications are given for all the disputed Drymaeus species. Bulimulus (Bulimulus) inconspicuus F. Haas, 1949, is now transferred to Drymaeus (Mesembrinus). Additionaly, a new species, Drymaeus (Drymaeus) verecundus Breure & Mogollón, is described”.
The new species was found near Iquitos in NE Peru, and the type material has been deposited in the Brussels and Leiden museums.
