          Abstract
          Background

          Terrestrial Caenogastropoda form an important but threatened component of the Borneo tropical rainforest malacofauna, where the group is nearly as rich in species as the Stylommatophora . They are, however, more sensitive to drought, temperature extremes and forest degradation.

          New information

          On a field course at Kuala Belalong Field Studies Centre in Brunei Darussalam (Borneo), a new caenogastropod species, belonging to the genus Craspedotropis , was discovered by the course participants. The participants decided to name the species Craspedotropis gretathunbergae n. sp., in honour of the climate change activist Greta Thunberg, as caenogastropod land snails, such as this species, are likely to suffer because of climate change.

            Additions to the knowledge of the land snails of Sabah (Malaysia, Borneo), including 48 new species

            Abstract We present reviews of the Sabah (Malaysia, on the island of Borneo) species of the following problematical genera of land snails ( Mollusca , Gastropoda ): Acmella and Anaglyphula ( Caenogastropoda : Assimineidae ); Ditropopsis ( Caenogastropoda : Cyclophoridae ); Microcystina ( Pulmonata : Ariophantidae ); Philalanka and Thysanota ( Pulmonata : Endodontidae ); Kaliella , Rahula , ( Pulmonata : Euconulidae ); Trochomorpha and Geotrochus ( Pulmonata : Trochomorphidae ). Next to this, we describe new species in previously revised genera, such as Diplommatina ( Diplommatinidae ); Georissa ( Hydrocenidae ); as well as some new species of genera not revised previously, such as Japonia ( Cyclophoridae ); Durgella and Dyakia ( Ariophantidae ); Amphidromus , and Trachia ( Camaenidae ); Paralaoma ( Punctidae ); Curvella ( Subulinidae ). All descriptions are based on the morphology of the shells. We distinguish the following 48 new species: Acmella cyrtoglyphe , Acmella umbilicata , Acmella ovoidea , Acmella nana , Acmella subcancellata , Acmella striata , and Anaglyphula sauroderma ( Assimineidae ); Ditropopsis davisoni , Ditropopsis trachychilus , Ditropopsis constricta , Ditropopsis tyloacron , Ditropopsis cincta , and Japonia anceps ( Cyclophoridae ); Diplommatina bidentata and Diplommatina tylocheilos ( Diplommatinidae ); Georissa leucococca and Georissa nephrostoma ( Hydrocenidae ); Durgella densestriata , Dyakia chlorosoma , Microcystina microrhynchus , Microcystina callifera , Microcystina striatula , Microcystina planiuscula , and Microcystina physotrochus ( Ariophantidae ); Amphidromus psephos and Trachia serpentinitica ( Camaenidae ); Philalanka tambunanensis , Philalanka obscura , Philalanka anomphala , Philalanka rugulosa , and Philalanka malimgunung ( Endodontidae ); Kaliella eurytrochus , Kaliella sublaxa , Kaliella phacomorpha , Kaliella punctata , Kaliella microsoma , Rahula delopleura , ( Euconulidae ); Paralaoma angusta ( Punctidae ); Curvella hadrotes ( Subulinidae ); Trochomorpha trachus , Trochomorpha haptoderma , Trochomorpha thelecoryphe , Geotrochus oedobasis , Geotrochus spilokeiria , Geotrochus scolops , Geotrochus kitteli , Geotrochus subscalaris , and Geotrochus meristorhachis ( Trochomorphidae ).

              Three new minute leaf litter beetles discovered by citizen scientists in Maliau Basin, Malaysian Borneo ( Coleoptera : Leiodidae , Chrysomelidae )

              Abstract Background We coin the term "taxon expeditions" for citizen scientists' field courses to carry out publishable taxonomic work in close association with trained taxonomists. New information During the first-ever taxon expedition, in Maliau Basin Studies Centre, Sabah, Malaysian Borneo, the participants sampled leaf litter beetles from lowland dipterocarp forest using the Winkler apparatus. The collected material proved to contain at least three undescribed species of small-bodied (ca. 1 mm long) hemispherical litter-dwelling Coleoptera . As part of the field course work, taxonomic descriptions were prepared for the chrysomelid Clavicornaltica sabahensis sp. n. and the leiodids Colenisia chungi sp. n. and Dermatohomoeus maliauensis sp. n.
