    Three species of snails, new to science were discovered and described from Bhutan by the researchers from the National Biodiversity Centre (NBC), Serbithang, Naturalis Biodiversity Center (Naturalis), Netherlands and Ugyen Wangchuck Institute for Conservation and Environmental Research (UWICER), Bumthang. The three newly described species are: Rahula kleini Gittenberger, Leda &Sherub, Rahula trongsaensis Gittenberger, Leda &Sherub, and Erhaia wangchuki Gittenberger, Sherub &Stelbrink.

With these discoveries, as of July 2017, the total snails and slugs (Molluscs) of Bhutan stands at 120 species.
