From a chosen study area of almost 70,000 km² in the central Highlands of Scotland, 76 species of Mollusca were obtained. The detailed habitat distribution of these species is described in the various plant communities and freshwater environments. The most important factors determining distribution are calcium, water and habitat structure.
