Summary

The works of the Marquis de Folin (1817-96) deserve honourable mention in the history of Oceanography, as well as in the annals of the studies on Basque Country fauna. De Folin considered the land snails <I>Crytazeca monodonta, Elena quimperiana, Trissexodon constrictus and Laminifera pauli</I> were strange elements in the western Pyrenees, and that they might have been introduced there by the descendants of the people of Atlantis i.e.: the Basque people, in his working hypothesis. That is, in his opinion, faunistic data might support the idea of a sunken land bridge between Europe and North America. Therefore, such data may also induce to admitting the possibility of an Atlantean origin for the Basque people.>
