[Mollusca • 2014] ‘Charopalafargei • A New, presumed narrowly Endemic Species (Gastropoda, Pulmonata, Charopidae) from Peninsular Malaysia

Charopalafargei spec. nov. is described. It is apparently restricted to the isolated limestone hill Gunung Kanthan in Peninsular Malaysia. The hill is scheduled for quarrying by the Lafarge Malaysia cement company, which has a high likelihood of resulting in the extinction of the species.
