This database represents the Samoan distributional and nomenclatural information included in Cowie, R.H. 1998. Catalog of the nonmarine snails and slugs of the Samoan Islands. Bishop Museum Bulletin in Zoology 3. Bishop Museum Press, Honolulu, as well as Samoan specimen records of non-marine snails and slugs held in the Bishop Museum Malacology Collection.
