Descriptions of two new carnivorous snail species from Thailand (Pulmonata: Streptaxidae, Diapheridae)
Basteria , Volume 80 - Issue 1/3 p. 139- 142
Two terrestrial, pulmonate species are described as new to science from Thailand, namely Discartemon moolenbeeki (Streptaxidae) and Sinoennea reischuetzorum (Diapheridae). The new Discartemon species is described on the basis of a single shell from Krabi Province, Thailand. In morphology this species belongs to the roebelenigroup, but it possesses a distinct keel on the middle of the last whorl. The relatively large Sinoennea species was collected at the entrance of a cave in northern Thailand (Chian Rai Province).
