Resumen

La especie de caracol Drymaeus virgulatus (Férussac, 1821) se registra en San Cristóbal con 21 conchas enteras o fragmentadas recogidas en la isla en noviembre de 2019. Las conchas completas fueron recogidas en las costas de South Frigate Bay y Majors Bay, mientras que también se han recuperado fragmentos en secciones naturales de la duna costera de North Frigate Bay. Estos últimos materiales están asociados a la época precolombina. Por lo tanto, estos hallazgos atestiguan la presencia pasada de esta especie en la isla. La ausencia de este taxón en los estudios malacológicos recientes lleva a considerar que ha sido extirpado de San Cristóbal. Los fragmentos aperturales de un gran bulimúlido, recogidos en las cuevas de la isla de Tintamarre, cerca de San Martín, también están relacionados con este taxón, lo que añade un segundo ejemplo de isla antillana de la que esta especie pudo haber desaparecido en los últimos siglos.
