The Andaman and Nicobar islands have a very distinct fauna of land molluscs which has very little in common with that of the mainland Indian at the species level. Studies of insular fauna are significant since these always offer unique opportunities to study the conditions leading to species isolation and endemism.
Information on land molluscs of these islands was hitherto available scattered throughout the scientific literature. The present report is a consolidated document of land molluscs of these islands. Besides updating the nomenclature of various species it also provides for the first time a key to the identification of land molluscs of the Andaman and Nicobar islands. Ecological notes have also been added wherever possible.
