El Salvador non-marine molluscs

Ignacio Agudo-Padrón has just published a short paper with a list of land and freshwater species from El Salvador. Although most data are contained in the overview by Thompson (2011), two species are listed now as a new for the territory: Bulimulus corneus (G.B. Sowerby I, 1833) and Orthalicus maclurae Martens, 1893.

The paper is illustrated with several photographs of live snails (Drymaeus discrepans (G.B. Sowerby I, 1833) above) and the species list contains 30 names, based on an inventory made by the government of El Salvador in 2016.
