A checklist of micro-landsnails from Langkawi Islands, located 38 km off the northwest coast of Kedah, Peninsular Malaysia, is presented for the first time. Specimens were collected from the limestone areas of Langkawi Islands. A total of 14 species of micro-landsnails from seven genera and five families were recorded in the survey. The more frequently encountered genera of microlandsnails that can be found in Langkawi were Diplommatina (Diplommatinidae) and Gyliotrachela (Vertiginidae), while the less frequently encountered genera were Opisthostoma (Diplommatinidae) and Sinoennea (Streptaxidae). Brief descriptions and illustrations of the unidentifiable morphospecies are provided to aid future taxonomie study.
