For the first time gastropods from the Meride Limestone (Ladinian) are documented. The material was collected from the outcrop Valle di Sceltrich at Monte San Giorgio (Southern Alps, Ticino, Switzerland) in the newly discovered Sceltrich beds. The taxa include Cryptonerita? sp., Coelostylina stotteri and Omphaloptycha cf. marianii. The findings represent the first identifiable Ladinian gastropods so far described from this UNESCO Fossillagerstätte and document the occurrence of several taxa of the clades Neritimorpha and Caenogastropoda from the Meride Limestone.
