Redécouverte d’Amphibulima patula (Bruguière, 1789) à Marie-galante –Gastropoda, Amphibulimidae).

Abstract : The finding of a live specimen and several fresh shells of Amphibulima patula (Bruguière, 1789) in Marie-Galante closes a one hundred-forty years long period during which the species was not observed on the island. The comparison of environmental conditions between the new locality and the historical locality where the snail is no more observed today suggests the main factor determining the occurrence of the species being a shrubby undergrowth of plants with limited seasonal variations. In Marie-Galante, such conditions can be found in shady high forest of ravine bottoms with deep soil. The extent and the fragmentation of species distribution area on the island are still to be established.
