Strobilopsids are a group of pupilloidean pulmonale gastropods now occurring in the Americas, Southeast Asia and New Guinea. In Europe, a rich fossil record (several species in the genera Eostrobilops and Strobilops) is reported from the Middle Eocene to the Late Pliocene, but only two species have been recorded from Italy so far: Eostrobilops patuliformis (Sacco, 1886) and E. aloisii Manganelli, Delle Cave & Giusti, 1989, found in the Pliocene of Piedmont and Umbria.

Abstract

Strobilopsids are a group of pupilloidean pulmonale gastropods now occurring in the Americas, Southeast Asia and New Guinea. In Europe, a rich fossil record (several species in the genera Eostrobilops and Strobilops) is reported from the Middle Eocene to the Late Pliocene, but only two species have been recorded from Italy so far: Eostrobilops patuliformis (Sacco, 1886) and E. aloisii Manganelli, Delle Cave & Giusti, 1989, found in the Pliocene of Piedmont and Umbria. Fossil strobilopsids collected in Baize di Caspreno (Tuscany) lacustrine clays turned out to belong to two different species (E. aloisii and Strobilops cf. romani Wenz, 1915) one of which is recorded for the first time in Italy.
