A new list of protected molluscs in Latvia – the New Red List – has been prepared. It includes 39 species from 170 species found in Latvia. The category 0 has no species, there is 1 species in the first category, 6 species in the second category, 25 species in the third category, and 7 species in the fourth category. Evaluation criteria similar to these in the previously published Red Books have been used. Information on 64 species included in the IUCN LC category is also collected. There is no need for special protection measures for these species; however, the dynamics of their populations should be monitored.

Key words: Latvia, mollusc species, protection status.
