Abstract

In total, 51 terrestrial gastropod taxa are recorded from the Prespa National Park, Albania. Seven species are local endemics for the region of Lake Prespa and adjacent mountains, eight are West-Balkan endemics and seven are Balkan endemics. There are no species considered threatened according to the IUCN categories and only one species, Orcula wagneri, is in the category Near Threatened. Of the habitats studied, limestone rocks and rocky grasslands are the most important for the diversity of the gastropods in the region.
