Abstract

West Virginia lies near two of the areas of migration for the northern dispersal of the southern snail fauna, viz., the Coastal Plain and the. Mississippi Valley (Ortmann, 1913). The boundaries between the southern and northern faunal groups lie within this State (Ortmann, o p. cit.). Since no detailed studies on snails have been undertaken in Jefferson County, this survey was made to determine their distribution.
