Dear Colleagues and friends of malacology,

we heartily invite you to the 1st Meeting of the Society Mollusc Research Austria (MoFA) which will be held from 26-27 June 2019 in Salzburg, Austria.

Dear friends of malacology!

Just before the middle of the year, the new newsletter of the Malakologische Arbeitsgemeinschaft Salzburg has been completed.

Bobby Patzner and his team hope you enjoy reading and wish you a nice – and successful – summer!

For the exhibition “Streck die Fühler aus”, which will open next week at the Biologiezentrum in Linz, the accompanying brochure is already available online. Members of MoFA, together with the colleagues in Linz, contributed significantly to the brochure in image and text. We are pleased that the cooperation was so constructive and that this beautiful publication was realized.

Sattmann, H., Aescht, E., Haring, E., Bisenberger, A. & Duda, M. (2019): Streck die Fühler aus. Schnecken in ihrere vollen Pracht. – Linz (Biologiezentrum des Oberösterreichischen Landesmuseums).
