Based on the analysis of bibliographical technical informations of recent production, a new total of 114 forms of marine molluscs (73 Gastropoda, 35 Bivalvia, 5 Scaphopoda and 1 Polyplacophora) is added and incorporated into the systematic malacological inventory of the State of Santa Catarina/ SC, central Southern Brazil, included in 92 genera and 55 families, bringing to 785 species and subspecies registration of regionally known species (12 Polyplacophora, 473 Gastropoda, 15 Scaphopoda, 261 Bivalvia, and 24 Cephalopoda).


Marine molluscs; Santa Catarina State; Southern Brazil; Species inventory


The coastal plain of the State of Santa Catarina/ SC [1], 25°57’41’’S - 29°23’55’’S, having a length of 580 km of meandering and diverse mainland and island coast (Figure 1), is located on a large "transition zone", still subject to technical discussions because of the complexity of its nuances and dynamic oceanographic, result of "convergence" between two major ocean currents: “Brazil”, hot to the North, and “Falkland or Malvinas”, cold to the South, apparently the section of the coast of Brazil between “Rio de Janeiro/ RJ” and “Santa Catarina/ SC” regions functions as an "ecological filter", preventing the dispersal of species, they are thermophilic - Typical of the marine zoogeographical Caribbean Province - or cryophilic - typical of the Patagonian marine zoogeographical Province [2,3].


Figure 1: Coastal plain territory of Santa Catarina’s State/ SC region, Central Southern Brazil.

Sensibly, this condition determines in the local environment a sensitive, diverse and heterogeneous biotic faunal composition, whose characteristics are to have a high potential on the contemporary practice of marine malaco-culture [4] as well as incentive for the development of accurate research on the marine biotic diversity occurring in it [4,5].

Continuing the work of regional survey, the present contribution incorporates in this opportunity the record of further 114 forms to previous systematic inventory of known marine molluscs of the Santa Catarina’s State/ SC, the geographical central portion of southern Brazil region [3], included in 92 genera and 55 families, raise the State record for 785 species and subspecies regionally known (12 Polyplacophora, 473 Gastropoda, 15 Scaphopoda, 261 Bivalvia, and 24 Cephalopoda) [6], based on analysis of biogeographical mappings and other relevant informations for 569 regional species contained in the literature of recent production [7] who working in the specific geographical region known as "Argentine Malacological Province – AMP", which includes coasts up to 300 m depths south of Brazil starting at Santa Catarina State/ SC in Cape/ Lighthouse Santa Marta (28º36’S – 48º48’W) (Figure 1 – Southern sector) to Rio Grande do Sul State/ RS in Chuí (33º41’27”S – 53º27’25”W) – a large continuous strip of sands, all of the Oriental Republic of Uruguay and the Argentine Republic up to 42ºS parallel in the Valdés Península [7], some of them already mentioned in previous short regional compilation [8].

However, to the biogeography of this species, recently Barroso et al. [9] adds the following (sic): "... Considering the results of cluster and ordination analyses, this study proposes to divide the Brazilian coast into four regions ....(3) South-eastern Brazil Area (from southern Bahia to Santa Catarina, Brazil, transition zone), and (4) Argentinian Province (Rio Grande do Sul state)...".

Additionally, the recent new species Pugilina tupiniquim Abbate and Simone in 2015 has come to represent the family Melongeniidae in Brazil [10], replacing in Santa Catarina State/ SC the previous specific status Pugilina morio [3].

In general, the taxonomic arrangement presented in this report basically continues accompanying the original proposal contained in Agudo-Padrón [3], based on the monographic contributions of Garcia et al. [11], Rios [12] and Thomé et al. [13] mainly.
