Location of Thailand

The non-marine mollusks of Thailand are a part of the molluscan fauna of Thailand (the wildlife of Thailand). A number of species of non-marine mollusks are found in the wild in Thailand.

There is known at least 23 families, 57 genera and 125 species of land gastropods from Eastern Thailand.[1]

There is known at least 8 species of freshwater gastropods and at least 2 species of freshwater bivalves from the Sakaeo Province in the Eastern Thailand.[2]

Many of the freshwater species are traditionally used as food.[3]

Summary table of number of species
freshwater gastropods at least 8 species in the Sakaeo Province[2]
land gastropods over 125 (125[1] species from Eastern Thailand)
gastropods altogether over 132 species
freshwater bivalves at least 2 species[2]
molluscs altogether over 134 species

Freshwater gastropods[edit]

The freshwater snail Clea helena is one of about 10 freshwater species within the mostly marine family Buccinidae (total about 1500 species).

The lower Mekong River area, which includes parts of Thailand, Laos and Cambodia, is considered to be a biodiversity hotspot for freshwater gastropods, with dominant taxa from the families Pomatiopsidae, Stenothyridae, Buccinidae and Marginellidae.[4]
