Vertigo pusilla in Turkey

In this post back in the fall of 2008 I had an account of myself searching for micro snails in Turkey a few weeks earlier. That post also had a link to a video of me in the field.

The snail species I collected that day included Vertigo pusilla and Euconulus fulvus. When I subsequently realized that the specimen of the sinistral Vertigo pusilla I had found was the 3rd ever record of that species from Turkey, I wrote up a short paper about it, which came out today*. You may download a pdf version of the paper from here. The paper has color pictures of Vertigo pusilla and Euconulus fulvus.
