|Abstract:||Survey work on the American Samoan island of Aunu'u, a small island
off the eastern end of Tutuila, combined with review of museum collections,
increased the known land snail fauna of the island from 2 to 22 species. Of these
species, 12 are native to the Samoan Archipelago, nine are introduced, and one
is cryptogenic (of unknown origin). The fauna is a subset of that of the main
American Samoan island of Tutuila, although it also includes one species endemic
to Aunu'u but now extinct.
