ABSTRACT
Thirty-three species of land snails were collected during a survey of the calcareous areas of the Karaburun Peninsula in western Turkey. The first record of Pagodulina hauseri for Turkey is given. Also given is the first record outside of Chios of a specimen identified tentatively as Vitrea storchi. Anatomies of Microxeromagna lowei, Monacha ocellata and M. syriaca are discussed. A comparison of the shell dimensions of the Helix species of western Turkey, including those from the Karaburun Peninsula, is presented. An unexpected result of the survey was the failure to find Albinaria on the peninsula.
