Abstract:

Samples of terrestrial gastropods were collected year-round in seven caves in Presidente Olegário municipality, Minas Gerais state, southeastern Brazil, during several expeditions from 2012 to 2014. Twenty-four taxa (plus a single freshwater species), mainly stylommatophorans, were found in the material. The following species are reported for the first time for Minas Gerais state: Alcadia iheringi Wagner, 1910 and Helicina sordida King, 1831 (Helicinidae); Cecilioides consobrina (d’Orbigny, 1841) (Ferussaciidae); Entodina gionensis Morretes, 1940 and Scolodonta interrupta (Suter, 1900) (Scolodontidae); Megalobulimus sanctipauli (Ihering & Pilsbry, 1900) (Strophocheilidae); Drymaeus coarctatus (Pfeiffer, 1845) (Bulimulidae); Habroconus semenlini (Moricand, 1846) (Euconulidae); and Solaropsis aff. rosaria (Pfeiffer, 1849) (Solaropsidae). Furthermore, the species Drymaeus iracema (Simone, 2015) and Drymaeus terreus (Simone, 2015) are synonymized with Drymaeus coarctatus (L. Pfeiffer, 1845).
