Dear all,

After several years of collaborative work, the list of french names for
the molluscs of France is now available on the MalaCo website. Designed to
be used by naturalists, site managers and the press, this list gives a
name for each terminal taxa of the French fauna. Some npmes have been
taken from literature, others have been invented, and all have been
submitted to a group of potential users, whose remarks have been taken
into account. The whole creation process is described in a paper currently
in press in the Revue d'Ecologie (Terre et Vie).
