Abstract

In the course of several trips to Argentina I had the opportunity of collecting specimens of Acrorbis petricola Odhner,1937, Biomphalaria orbignyi Paraense, 1975, B. peregrina (Orbigny, 1835), B. tenagophila (Orbigny,1835) Lymnaea viatrix Orbigny, 1835, Antillorbis nordestensis (Lucena, 1954), B. intermedia (Paraense & Deslandes, 1962), B. oligoza Paraense, 1974, B. straminea (Dunker, 1848), Drepanotrema anatinum (Orbigny, 1835), D. cimex (Moricand, 1837), D. depressissimum (Moricand, 1837), D. heloicum (Orbigny, 1835), D. kermatoides (Orbigny, 1835), D. lucidum (Pfeiffer, 1839), L. columella Say, 1817, Physa acuta Draparnaud, 1805, and P. marmorata Guilding, 1828.

This paper is based on material collected by the author during several trips to Argentina, one of which, from March 13 to May 18, 1973, was supported by the Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas of that country and the Conselho Nacional de Pesquisas of Brazil as executive agencies of the Brazil-Argentina Agreement on Scientific Cooperation.

The specimens were killed and preserved as described elsewhere (Paraense 2003). Voucher specimens are deposited in the Malacological Collection of the Oswaldo Cruz Institute.
