• New species of snails discovered

    A paper titled “RAHULA REVISITED (PULMONATA: EUCONULIDAE), WITH DATA FOR BHUTAN, INDIA (ASSAM), LAOS, VIETNAM AND INDONESIA, INCLUDING TWO NEW SPECIES” is published in the Journal of Conchology. The paper describes two new snail species: Rahula namgayae from Bhutan and Rahula maasseni from Indonesia. The study was conducted by the National Biodiversity Centre, Naturalis Biodiversity Center (The Netherlands), Ugyen Wangchuck Institute for Conservation and Environmental Research (UWICER).

    New data for Rahula species in Bhutan are given, including a new species and an extended description of R. trongsaensis based on a newly found fully grown shell. The genus is known from only the eastern half of the country. Two hitherto overlooked nominal taxa of Kaliella from Assam are regarded as Rahula species resembling R. trongsaensis; photographs of syntypes of these taxa are presented. Additions to the species list for Rahula that was published earlier are added, including a new species for Indonesia, Sulawesi. An updated distribution map for the genus is provided in the paper.
