- n. Plural form of vitrinid.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
All vitrinids appear to live at high altitude mountains.
The vitrinids are closely related to some full slug families, including the Limacidae.
As I already mentioned in another post, Berhard Hausdorf1 has proposed that the European vitrinids are limited to cold mountain habitats, because they are displaced from lower and warmer habitats by the more successful slugs, their distant relatives.
