Four new species of land snails have been found in the Southern Appalachian Mountains in North Carolina and Tennessee. Monroe County in Tennessee is one area, and in the state the snails are found in Swain, Graham, and Mitchell counties.
Selected high elevation forests and heath balds of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park were comprehensively sampled for the first time. Overall species richness declined with elevation, yet numbers of snails appear to change little with increasing altitude.
A key was prepared for the shell-less opisthobranch gastropods reported as occurring on the Atlantic coast from South Carolina to New Jersey. Forty-seven species were keyed out using primarily external characteristics.
