The Mollusca of some acid fens in south-west Ireland are listed together with the vegetation at collection sites. The fens all produced more extensive molluse faunas (8–18 species) than was expected, possibly due to the ameliorating effects of the Atlantic climate with its high precipitation and mild winters.
