List of non-marine molluscs of China

Location of China

The non-marine mollusks of China are a part of the molluscan fauna of China (wildlife of China). A number of species of non-marine mollusks are found in the wild in China.

Freshwater gastropods[edit]

Oncomelania hupensis is medically important in China because it can transfer Schistosoma japonicum, which causes schistosomiasis.
