Three species of land snails found in the French Alps are tentatively identified with ‘forgotten’ nominal taxa originally described from about the same area, viz. Limax erythrus Bourguignat, 1864, Trichia phorochaetia (Bourguignat, 1864) and Phenacolimax stabilei (Lessona, 1880), and are redescribed in detail.
