The Malacological Collection of IBER-BAS was founded in 1997. Currently, it is stored in the IBEI-BAS (Building 1) without being in a separate collection unit. The collection consists mainly of terrestrial gastropods, collected by Bulgarian researchers. There are also some materials kindly provided by foreign malacologists. The collection contains about 3,500 lots of terrestrial gastropods with more than 40,000 specimens, including paratype specimens of more than 20 species.
