Based in reliable bibliographical technical reports of recent production, most four new gastropod mollusc forms (one marine - sea slug & three terrestrial) are added and incorporated to the previous systematic malacological inventory of Santa Catarina’s State/ SC, central southern Brazil region, the giant land snails Megalobulimus jaguarunensis Fontenelle, Cavallari & Simone, 2014, Megalobulimus abbreviatus (Bequaert, 1848), Megalobulimus sanctipauli (Ihering, 1900) (MEGALOBULIMIDAE) and the sea slug Pleurobranchaea inconspicua Bergh, 1897 (PLEUROBRANCHAEIDAE), raise the state records for 668 marine species and subspecies regionally known (11 Polyplacophora, 397 Gastropoda, 10 Scaphopoda, 226 Bivalvia, and 24 Cephalopoda) and for 223 the number of continental forms (193 gastropods – 151 terrestrial, 2 amphibian, 40 freshwater – and 30 limnic bivalves). Additional taxonomic and inedit regional environmental informations are included, updated for other two sea slug species previously reported for the State without specific determination, as well as new geographic occurrence records from terrestrial gastropods in Santa Catarina and in the neighboring State of Rio Grande do Sul/ RS.
