Taxonomic Checklist
Select Phylum from the above list
Other non-Molluscan Phyla (Echinodermata, Brachiopoda etc) are being added to the checklist and photo sections of the website. This is to help identify species that may be mistaken for Mollusca, but actually are not.

Taxonomic Checklist Mollusca

The following Checklist was started because of my interest in Mollusca, and that I had not come across any other similar online information on the New Zealand Molluscan Fauna.

I therefore decided to compile a list from what information I have currently available to me.

Please email me at andrew@mollusca.co.nz with any updates, omissions or errors.
