Resumen:
Newrecords for Bostryx holostoma (Pfeiffer, 1846), Pupoides minimus (Philippi,1860), Stephacharopa calderaensis Miquel & Araya, 2013and anunidentified charopid species are presented on the basis of specimens collectednear the city of Antofagasta, in northern Chile. This is the first record for S.calderaensis after its description, extending its known distributionabout 350 km northwards. Details on the protoconch of B. holostoma arepresented for the first time, and this species extends its distributional range145 km southwards. The microhabitat of these species in litho-refugia mayexplain the presence of these minute terrestrial mollusks in hyper aridnorthern Chile, further highlighting the need of additional studies of thisneglected fauna.
