Three new mollusc species for Slovakia - result of one visit of the garden centre

On August 7, 2015, we conducted a casual malacological survey of the open-air horticultural centre in Bratislava City, Slovakia (coordinates: 48.151260°N, 17.031394°E). The result of the survey are finds of viable populations of three non-native species for Slovakia territory: Hygromia cinctella (Draparnaud, 1801) and Cepaea nemoralis (Linnaeus, 1758). We also found several empty fresh shells of the green garden snail (Helix aperta Born, 1778).
