91 mollusc species were recorded from 92 sites in the Bukovské vrchy Mts (Slovakia) as a result of the recent malacological research, combined with earlier published and unpublished data. The most important communities of predominantly East Carpathian species occur throughout the deciduous woodlands dominated by beech. The mollusc communities are characterised by low numbers of individuals dispersed over large areas. Rich malacocoenoses are confined to scattered favourable habitats, such as well vegetated base-rich seepages, landslide scars and water-logged depressions, as well as at fresh calcareous outcrops or screes. A detailed snail succession from Holocene slope sediments at the Krivoštianka (Humenské vrchy Mts) provides the most complete record from the Slovak East Carpathians and is the most detailed yet published from this region. The mollusc succession differs from the standard faunal developmental pattern of Central Europe due to the absence of a considerable number of common Central European species, whose succession is well known at present.
