Family HELICINIDAE Férussac, 1822

 

  DISTRIBUTION.-  The Neotropical Realm, the Pacific Islands, Australia, Indian Ocean islands and southeast Asia.

 

  TAXONOMY.-  Numerous genera and subgenera.  There is little consensus on the status and validity of many of these.  The family HELICINIDAE is poorly studied, and new investigations will require many changes.  A study by Richling (2004) is a major step in addressing many taxonomic problems in Central America and Mexico.  Three subfamilies are recognized in the Neotropical region: Helicininae, Vianinae and Stoastominae.  The subfamily Stoastominae is confined to the West Indies and coastal Venezuela.

 

 

SUBFAMILY HELICININAE Férussac, 1822

 

  DISTRIBUTION.-  New World, ranging from Argentina north to the southeastern United States and throughout the West Indies.

 

  TAXONOMY.-  Four genera of Helicininae occur in Mexico and Central America.  Fifty-seven species and twelve subspecies are recognized in the area covered in this study.  Careful studies of morphology, biogeography and ecology by H. B. Baker (1922, 1926, 1928) and Richling (2004) demonstrate that many forms that were previously considered subspecies or varieties are valid species.  This summary relies heavily upon the work of Richling (2004).

  TYPE SPECIES.-  By monotypy Ceochasma phrixina Thompson, 1968.

 

  DISTRIBUTION.-  Colima, Mexico.

Genus Helicina Lamarck, 1799

 

Helicina Lamarck, 1799: 76.

 

  TYPE SPECIES.-  Helicina neritella Lamarck, 1799.

 

  DISTRIBUTION.-  The West Indies, Mexico, Central America and South America.

 

  TAXONOMY.-  Nine subgenera are recognized in this study.  Helicina s. s., Oxyrhombus, Tristramia, Pseudoligygyra, Cinctella, Oligyra, “Gemma”, Analcadia and Sericea.  The Superfamily Helicinoidea is a nearly morphostatic group of organisms in which the soft anatomy shows little differentiation between and within genera.  In this case shell characters prove useful for grouping species, even though in some instances the distinctions between subgenera approach being arbitrary.  H. B. Baker (1922a, 1926, 1928), Thompson (1968, 1980, 1982) and Richling (1903) provide information concerning the classification of the neotropical fauna.  Richling greatly advances our knowledge of the Costa Rican fauna, and she proposes a clasification that recognizes fewer subgenera.  The problem of integrating the rest of the Mexico and Central American species into the classification that she proposes requires recognition of additional subgenra.  This study follows largely the subgeneric classification proposed by H. B. Baker (1928).

Superfamily AMPULLARIOIDEA

 

Family AMPULLARIIDAE Gray, 1824

 

Pilidae Preston, 1915.

Ampullariidae Gray, 1824.-  Cowie, 1997; Bulletin of Zoological Nomenclature, 54 (2).-  Cowie & Thiengo, 2003; Malacologia, 45.

 

  TYPE GENUS.-  Ampullaria Lamarck, 1799.  Ampullaria is a junior synonym of Pila Röding, 1798.  The family name Pilidae was based on the genus Pila.  The International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature [ICZN] 1999a, Opinion 1913 ruled that Ampullariidae is the valid name for this family.

 

  DISTRIBUTION.-  Freshwater in Tropical America, Africa and southeast Asia east to the Philippine Islands.

 

  TAXONOMY.-  The taxonomy of this family is subjective and unstable.  There is little agreement on the number of genera or subgenera, and the species level taxonomy is chaotic.  Nearly all species were described on the basis of only the shell.  In most instances only a single specimen was included in the original description.  Frequently the locality of origin of type specimens was unknown or was only vaguely known.  The result of this history is that there is very little agreement concerning how many valid species exist among the hundreds of names that have been proposed.  Cowie & Thiengo (2003) recognize 140 neotropical species and subspecies as possibly valid among five indigenous genera.  Their work represents a major effort to bring some order to this chaos.  The following arrangement departs very little from their scheme.

  TYPE LOCALITY.-  For Ampullria flagellata only.  A short distance below [Ciudad] Veracruz, Mexico.  Lectotype ANSP 50645 (Pilsbry, 1991a: 325-326; H. B. Baker, 1964: 168).

 

  DISTRIBUTION RECORDS.-  From Tamaulipas south along eastern Mexico to Dept. Petén, Guatemala and Belize, and along the Pacific coast from Colima southeast to Chiapas.  Cowie & Thiengo (2003: 64) fide Pain, 1964 state that this species is distributed from central Mexico to the Rio Magdalena Basin, Colombia.  Some records are as follow.  COSTA RICA, Guanacaste Prov.: Rio de Cañas north of Santa Cruz (Pilsbry, 1920: 9).  GUATEMALA, Dept. Petén: Tikal National Park (Basch, 1959; Occ. Pap. Mus. Zool. Univ. Mich., (612): 8) MEXICO.  CAMPECHE: 5-11 mi.

     Widely introduced in the Pacific Islands and southeast Asia.

 

    TAXONOMY.-  The systematic status of the many names associated with this widely distributed species is unsatisfactory.  All of the names are based on shell characters that are variable and unreliable.  However, to treat them as synonyms without careful morphological study or genetic analysis is as arbitrary as was their original descriptions. Very few locality citations from the literature are repeated here, because of the long lists of synonyms that may or may not apply to Pomacea flagellata and its subspecies.  The reader is referred to Cowie & Thiengo (2003) for these locality citations.

Ampullaria flagellata lattrei Reeve.  Hinkley, 1920; Nautilus, 34:47.

Pomacea lattrei (Reeve), Cowie & Thiengo, 2003: 67.

 

  TYPE LOCALITY.  Cobán, Guatemala.  Lectotype BMNH 2020665 (Cowie & Thiengo, 2003).

 

  DISTRIBUTION RECORDS.-  Northern and eastern Guatemala.  Hinkley (1920) lists this species from Rocks near Castillo San Filipe, Lago de Izabal, [Dept. Izabal], Guatemala.

 

  REMARKS.- The species was named by Reeve as Ampullaria lattrei for the French naturalist M. A. Delattre, because Reeve took the discoverer’s name to be de Lattre, a titular designation of nobility. The ICZN code Appendix D, para. 21 (d) prohibits the use of a particle denoting nobility in a scientific name.  Fischer and Crosse emended the name to delattrei, conforming to its correct orthography.  However, ICZN Article 32 requires that the original spelling must be maintained, except as provided by para. 32 (c) (ii).  If a name is mis-spelled due to a typographic error or a lapsus calami, and this is clear in the publication without reference to other sources, then the name can be emended. Reeve’s original name must be retained, regardless of its incorrect etymology.

Subfamily VIVIPARINAE Gray, 1847

 

 

Genus Viviparus Montfort, 1810

 

 

Viviparus inornatus (Binney, 1865)

 

Vivipara inornata Binney, 1865; Amer. Jour. Conch., 1: 49; pl. 7, fig. 1 (shell).-  Binney, 1865; Smith. Misc. Coll., (144): 113-114; text-fig. 225 (shell).-  von Martens, 1899: 426.

Paludina inornata (Binney).  Fischer & Crosse, 1891: 291.

Viviparus geogrianus (Lea).  Clench & Fuller, 1965; Occ. Pap. on Moll., 2: 398-399; pl. 64, fig. 6 (lectotype).

 

  TYPE LOCALITY.-  Chopatilo.  von Martens (1899) suggests that the orthography of Chopatilo probably is incorrect.  He gives three localities with different spellings that may have been the place of origin of the types, one in Michoacán, one in Sonora and one in Nuevo León.  The latter locality is here selected as the most probable:  Hacienda Chapotito, near Cerralvo, Nuevo León (26.10º N, 99.62º W).  Lectotype MCZ 234704 (Clench & Fuller, 1965: 397).

 

  DISTRIBUTION RECORDS.-  NUEVO LEÓN ?: known only from the type locality.

 

  REMARKS.-  Clench & Fuller (1965: 398-399) suggest that Vivipara inornata may be a synonym of Viviparus georgianus (Lea, 1834) because of its resemblance to atypically green and unbanded specimens from northern Florida.  This synonymy seems unlikely because the weakly impressed suture that characterizes Viviparus inornatus differs strikingly from the much more deeply impressed suture of Viviparus georgianus.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Superfamily CYCLOPHOROIDEA

 

 

Family NEOCYCLOTIDAE Kobelt & Moellendorff, 1897

 

  TYPE GENUS.-  Neocyclotus Fischer & Crosse, 1886.

   

  DISTRIBUTION.-  American tropics, South Pacific islands.

 

  TAXONOMY.-  Twenty-eight genera of Neocyclotidae are recognized currently in the neotropical region.  Another six genera occur in the Pacific region.    The generic and higher taxonomy of the cyclophorids is very unsettled.  There is little agreement on the current classification regarding the numbers of families, subfamilies and genera.  Three subfamilies of Neocyclotidae are recognized in the Neotropics.  The Megalomastomatinae is found in Cuba, Hispaniola, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands, and in eastern Mexico, Guatemala and Belize.  The Crocidopomatinae is found in Cuba, Hispaniola and the Lesser Antilles (Thompson, 1967).  The Neocyclotinae is found in the Greater and Lesser Antilles, and the mainland from Mexico south to Bolivia.

  TYPE SPECIES.-  Aperostoma (Incidostoma) malleatum Bartsch & Morrison, 1942.

 

  DISTRIBUTION.-  Costa Rica south to Bolivia and Brazil.

 

  TAXONOMY.-  Aperostoma Troschel was used by Bartsch & Morrison (1942: 187-284) for a large group of mainland species.  The genus name is not available for this group because Herrmannsen (1852) designated Cyclostoma mexicanum as the type species, which belongs in a different subfamily, the Megalomastomatinae.  Of the eight subgenera of Aperostoma recognized by Bartsch (1942), by Bartsch & Morrison (1942) and by Morrison (1955), Neocyclotus is the oldest available name, and Incidostoma is the next oldest available name.  Incidostoma and Neocyclotus differ sFLMNHficiently to be regarded as separate genera, following Morrison (1955).

 

   Bartsch (1942), and Bartsch & Morrison (1942) list 72 species in Aperostoma (= Incidostoma as used here).  Ten species occur in the study area.

Genus Pachychilus I. Lea and H. C. Lea, 1850

 

Pachychilus I. and H. C. Lea, 1850; Proc. Zool. Soc. London: 179.-  Brot, 1874; in Martini & Chemnitz, Syst. Conch. Cab. (Melaniaceen): 19-56.-  Fischer and Crosse, 1892; Mission Sci. Mex., II: 320-371.-  Von Martens, 1899; Biol. Cent. Amer.: 435-464.-  Morrison, 1954; Proc. U. S. Nat. Mus., 103: 364-367.

Cercimelania Crosse and Fischer, 1892; Miss. Sci. Mex., II: 327, 328, 340.

Sphaeromelania Rovereto, 1899; Atti. Soc. Ligust. Sci. Nat. Geogr., 10: 109 (substitute name for Pachychilus).

 

  DISTRIBUTION.-  Eastern Mexico from Tamaulipas south to the Isthmus of Tehuantepéc and from there southeast along east and west coast drainages at lower elevations to Nicaragua.  From there the range is disjunct to the area near Puerto Cabello, Venezuela.  Three species occur in Cuba.

 

  TAXONOMY.-  Pachychilus are large, handsome aquatic snails.  Generally they are abundant, and they are the most conspicuous invertebrates present in streams and lakes where they occur.  The snails have very limited dispersal ability.  Populations are limited genetically and geographically, and numerous forms occur in nature.  Because of their abundance and conspicuous appearance specimens found their way into the laboratories of early European and American naturalists.  Numerous specific and subspecific names were proposed to account for the observed variation.  Whether these represent valid taxa or not remains to be determined.  For the most part the taxonomic arrangement used herein follows Von Martens (1899), with subsequently described species inserted where it seems appropriate. Fischer & Crosse (1892) provide an exhaustive synonymy of the species known to then.  Von Martens (1899) summarizes subsequent literature.  The reader is referred to the monographs by Reeve (1861), Brot (1874), Fischer & Crosse (1892) and Von Martens (1899) for aid in identifying the earlier known species.
