Terrestrial invertebrates of the faroe islands 4. slugs and snails gastropoda checklist distribution and habitats



Terrestrial invertebrates of the faroe islands 4. slugs and snails gastropoda checklist distribution and habitats



Fauna Norvegica Series A 2(1): 14-27



Surveys in the summers of 1977 (8 locations) and 1978-1979 (111 locations) on 17 islands in the Faroes yielded 20 spp. (9 slugs and 11 snails) of terrestrial gastropods. Punctum pygmaeum Draparnaud was recorded for the 1st time; the total number of species known from the Faroes is now 20. All Faroese species also occur in neighboring areas (i.e. Scotland, Orkneys, Shetland, Iceland and Western Norway) with a few minor exceptions. Many of the species (especially the slugs) have wide distributions and are relatively abundant in the Faroes (10 spp. were found on .gtoreq. 15 islands and 5 spp. on 8-13 islands). The remaining exhibit relatively broad habitat niches, though many show an association with man-made habitats and may have been introduced by man. Data on numbers, habitat distribution, and distribution maps for the Faroes are given for all 20 spp. [Arion ater, A. distinctus, A. intermedius, A. silvaticus, A. subfuscus, Deroceras agreste, D. laeve, D. reticulatum, Limax marginatus, Aegopinella nitidula, A. pura, Cochlicopa lubrica, Columella aspera, Lauria cylindracea, Nesovitrea hammonis, Oxychilus alliarius, O. cellarius, Punctum pygmaeum, Vitrea contracta, Vitrina pellucida].
