A species of the ariantine helicid genus Campylaea is first reported from Corsica. Shell and anatomical features of the Corsican specimens, particularly the structure of the penial papilla, match those of C. planospira (Lamarck, 1822) and the shell size and thick hairy periostracum are in line with those of specimens from the southern coasts of Tuscany (Monte Argentario and Cosa promontory) and the southern Tuscan Archipelago (Giglio and Giannutri islands) assigned to C. planospira occultata (Paulucci, 1886). Although autonomous arrival in Corsica cannot be excluded a priori it is probable that the species, only recorded from a single site, was introduced into Corsica, presumably in Roman times.
