Abstract

Croatia has abundance of species, subspecies and endemic species, owing to rich habitat diversity. The major part of endemic species can be associated with karst and its habitats, where subterranean snails represent one of the most abundant taxa. However, devastation and cave habitat loss represent significantly high threat to cave fauna survival, where human impact has a great influence. This paper presents a brief overview of critically endangered, endangered and vulnerable subterranean snail species of Croatia, described with main causes of threat and proposed conservation measures. Most of the described taxa is strictly protected by legal acts, but for more effective conservation additional measures are needed. Subterranean snails of Croatia have rich biodiversity and narrow range of distribution, unlike other subterranean snail taxa distributed in Europe.
