This paper describes a new genus, two new species and new records of subterranean gastropods from the Sabinas and Álamos River, Coahuila, and the Nazas River, Durango, in northern Mexico. Phreatomascogosgregoigen. n. et sp. n. from Don Martín Basin, Coahuila, is described based on shells and opercula that show some morphological similarities with shells of Phreatodrobia Hershler & Longley, 1986 (Lithoglyphidae), which is a subterranean genus from neighboring area in Texas, United States…

A remarkable new genus and species of subterranean freshwater snail from a recently dried-up spring of Viesca, Coahuila, Northern Mexico
It is considered that Phreatoviesca spinosa is possibly extant in the aquifers in or adjacent to the Viesca region, and conchologically distinct from other phreatic genera by three remarkable characteristics.
The Sabinas River in Coahuila – a new hotspot of molluscan biodiversity near Cuatro Ciénegas, Chihuahuan Desert, northern Mexico
The malacofauna of the Sabinas River, Don Martin basin, Coahuila, North Mexico, was studied conchologically at nine sites. In total, 23 species of freshwater molluscs, of which 21 are native and two
Subterranean freshwater gastropod biodiversity and conservation in the United States and Mexico
The biology of stygosnails in North America is reviewed and conservation needs and policy considerations that will aid in their protection are discussed.
The freshwater snails (Mollusca: Gastropoda) of Mexico: updated checklist, endemicity hotspots, threats and conservation status
An updated checklist of native Mexican freshwater gastropods is presented with data on their general distribution, hotspots of endemicity, threats, and for the first time, their estimated conservation status and identified 3 hotspots and 2 potential centers of gastropod endemicity.


Hadoceras taylori, a new genus and species of phreatic hydrobiidae (Gastropoda: Rissoacea) from South-Central Texas
The detailed morphological description provided for this species includes aspects of the shell, operculum, pallial cavity, digestive system, and reproductive system of both sexes of Hadoceras taylori, a new genus and species of Hydrobiidae, Littoridininae, from three localities in Real County, Texas.
Six new subterranean freshwater gastropod species from northern Albania and some new records from Albania and Kosovo (Mollusca, Gastropoda, Moitessieriidae and Hydrobiidae)
Investigations of several caves and karstic springs revealed six new gastropod species living in subterranean waters and resulted in some note-worthy faunistic records, which are briefly discussed.
New records of subterranean and spring molluscs (Gastropoda: Hydrobiidae) from Montenegro and Albania with the description of five new species.
A short overview of subterranean Balkan hydrobid genera, with special focus on genus Bythiospeum Bourguignat, 1892 and Iglica A.J. Wagner, 1928 is given, and based on recently collected material in Montenegro and Albania, five new species are described.
Freshwater mollusks of the Valley of Sobaco, Coahuila, Northeastern Mexico - a subfossil ecosystem similar to Cuatrociénegas
In the Valley of Sobaco located in Coahuila, Mexico, were found the remains of an aquatic ecosystem with a Holocene malacofauna showing similarities to modern aquatic communities of the
Two new genera, i.e. Kolevia gen. and Microstygia gen. nov., in addition to the five subterranean species were described here as new for science were described, and a map with the sampling sites is provided.
Navalis perforatus a new genus and new species (Gastropoda, Hydrobiidae) from Spain
A new species of the family Hydrobiidae (Mollusca, Gastropoda) is described, being the type species of a new genus and its morphological characteristics are described and figured.
Phylogenetic relationships of the Balkan Moitessieriidae (Caenogastropoda: Truncatelloidea).
The family Moitessieriidae includes minute dioecious gastropods exclusively inhabiting subterranean waters, including thermal ones, and are clearly distinct from all other families of the Truncatelloidea, however, their monophyly remains doubtful.
A new species of the genus
A new species of the genus Scolytodes Ferrari, 1867 is described from Peru and is distinguished from other relatedspecies of the subgenus Prionosceles Blandford, 1897 by the shining pronotal and elytral surface and by the elyTral puncturation.
Two new subfossil species of springsnails (Hydrobiidae: Pyrgulopsis) from North Mexico and their relation with extant species from Cuatrociénegas
