Abstract
Holospira (Bostrichocentrum) goldmani Bartsch, 1906 is an urocoptid gastropod distributed throughout northwestern Oaxaca in southern Mexico. Since its original description, posterior records have been restricted to the Mixteca Baja region of Oaxaca. The purpose of this paper is to expand on the geographical distribution of this species, georeferencing six additional localities. Five of our sites are located in the Mixteca Alta region of Oaxaca. Holospira goldmani can survive in soil derived from non-calcareous rocks. Field observations of ecological preferences of H. goldmani suggest that they are more ecologically tolerant than previously thought.
