North American native mollusks are among the most imperiled group of organisms in the world, however, not much was known of the mollusk fauna in the Shawnee National Forest in southern Illinois. Our objective was to compile a list of historical and extant mollusks known from the western half of the area. Our data show 52 mollusk species are known from the western portion of the Shawnee National Forest and surroundings areas, including 23 native bivalves, one nonindigenous bivalve, six native aquatic snail species, and 55 native terrestrial snails.
