New data on the species diversity and ecology of some snail species occurring in the island of Samothraki (north Aegean Greece) is presented. This island's malacological aspect has not been studied since 1988. Considering the results from previous molluscan studies on the island, our newly acquired data, and recent taxonomic changes, it was observed that a total of 38 species live on the island. The humid habitats in lowland plan (Platanus orientalis) forests with presence of artificial calcium sources were the richest in snail species. © NwjZ, Oradea, Romania, 2010.
