Survey of Land Snails Restricted to Dry Vineforests in the Lockyer Valley

Eddie, C. (1993). Survey of Land Snails Restricted to Dry Vineforests in the Lockyer Valley, Southeast Queensland. Unpublished report to University of Queensland, Gatton College, Lawes. 137pp.

Seventeen patches of dry rainforest (semi-evergreen vine thicket) were surveyed for land snails in 1993 in the Lockyer Valley, situated between Toowoomba and Brisbane in southeast Queensland. Despite a heavily cleared and highly modified landscape, the Lockyer Valley possesses a rich land snail fauna, with 56 species being recorded. Several of these are short-range endemic species and are restricted to the remaining tiny dry rainforest remnants. Site species richness ranged from nine to 31 species. Twelve species new to science were discovered during this survey.
