Between January 1982 and December 1985, 65 species of Mollusca were collected from the Layari River, an ephemeral stream that bisects Karachi. Gastropods were dominant followed by bivalves. The upstream region is hypersaline and devoid of molluscs; the stretch within Karachi is heavily polluted and almost no living molluscs occur here.
