The nominal species name “ Theodoxus dniestroviensis ” was commonly accepted as introduced by Put’ in 1972 for neritid snails occurring in the upper part of the Dniester River basin. Currently an earlier publication [Put’, 1957] has been found in which this name is established in accordance with the ICZN guidelines, so the dating should be amended...

The species of the Ponto-Caspian gastropod genus Clathrocaspia Lindholm, 1930 have been recorded so far from the Caspian Sea Basin only from marine waters, whereas they inhabit the estuarine areas as well as the purely freshwater environments in the Azov–Black Sea Basin. This genus has recently been assessed as putatively extinct in the Caspian Sea...
Article
Biodiversity and conservation assessments rise and fall with taxonomic accuracy. An example of a still largely unresolved taxonomy is found in the Gastropoda of the Caspian Sea. The present paper clarifies the taxonomy of the genus Abeskunus and its three species of anomalohaline gastropods endemic to the Caspian Sea. Based on material from Pleisto...

The unique aquatic Pontocaspian (PC) biota of the Black Sea Basin (BSB) is in decline. The lack of detailed knowledge on the status and trends of species, populations, and communities hampers a thorough risk assessment and precludes effective conservation.

The gastropod mollusc genus Borysthenia Lindholm, 1914 comprises many species throughout Europe, Asia, North Africa and North America but species delimitation, based mainly on shell morphology (only possible concerning the fossil records) is often disputable. Statistical methods used to test if the shell measurements are reliable traits in delimita...

Aim The unique aquatic Pontocaspian (PC) biota of the Black Sea Basin (BSB) is in decline. Lack of detailed knowledge on the status and trends of species, populations and communities hampers a thorough risk assessment and precludes effective conservation. This paper aims to review PC biodiversity trends using endemic molluscs as a model group. We a...
Article
Although the historical and modern distributional range of the European spring snail genus Marstoniopsis has already been considered in the context of Pleistocene/Holocene glaciations, many details of the eastern limits of these taxa remain uncertain. Also, the taxonomic status of some nominal species commonly attributed to this genus needs to be c...
Article
The Caspiinae comprise small gastropod species inhabiting low-salinity environments of the Pontocaspian region, specifically the Caspian Sea and the limans, estuaries and lower river reaches of the northern Black Sea Basin.

Abstract. The rediscovered molluscs collected by Karl E. von Baer in the Caspian Sea (1853–1857) and described by Stephan Clessin and Władysław Dybowski (in Dybowski [1887–1888]) are studied and illustrated. Altogether 26 species were described, 15 as new, by Clessin and W. Dybowski. In the Baer collection, we were able to identify the type series...

The study aims to define the boundaries of variability in features of the shell measurements in molluscs of the genus Borysthenia and to assess reliability of these traits in delimitation of recent and fossil (Early Pontian) species. Summarizing it is stated that the dimensional characteristics of the Borysthenia shell are suitable for the differen...

Defining and recording the loss of species diversity is a daunting task, especially if identities of species under threat are not fully resolved. An example is the Pontocaspian biota. The mostly endemic invertebrate faunas that evolved in the Black Sea – Caspian Sea – Aral Sea region and live under variable salinity conditions are undergoing strong...
