We report the establishment of another globally invasive land snail species in the Hawaiian islands. Punctidae Paralaoma servilis (Shuttleworth, 1852) New state record Cowie et al. (1995) and Cowie (1997) reported the occurrence on the island of Hawai'i of an unidentified land snail tentatively assigned to the genus Striatura (Family Zonitidae). We now identify this species as Paralaoma servilis (Shuttleworth, 1852) (Family Punctidae) and report its occurrence also on the island of O'ahu (Fig. 1).
