Karucia sublacustrina a new species of freshwater snails (Hydrobiidae, Gastropoda) is described based on material collected from Skadar Lake (Montenegro, Albania). The new species belongs to monotypic genus Karucia gen. n. The shell morphology and body shape of the new genus resembles Radomaniola Szarowska, 2006 and Grossuana Radoman, 1973, from which it differs in the larger shells with relatively slim and a slightly, but clearly shouldered body whorl. The number of gastropods from Skadar Lake basin tallies now 50 species. The adjusted rate of gastropod endemicity for Skadar Lake basin is estimated to be 38%. By compiling faunal and taxonomic data we also aim to provide information of relevance as to conservation efforts. © Vladimir Pešić, Peter Glöer.

New stygobiont species of Hydrobiidae were described. Both new species and one new genus, Plagigeyeria lukai n. sp. and Zeteana ljiljanae n. gen. et n. sp., have been collected in a spring from village Pricelje near Pogorica. An updated checklist of hydrobiids snails from Montenegro is given.

Two new species of the genus Bythinella Moquin-Tandon, 1856, i.e. B. marici n. sp. from Bosnia and Hercegovina, and B. istoka n. sp. from Kosovo were described. The holotypes of both species as well as the penis morphology are depicted. In addition a list and distribution map of the Bythinella spp. occuring in the Western Balkan Peninsula is provided.

Using published records and original data from recent field work and revision of Iranian material of certain species deposited in the collections of the Natural History Museum Basel, the Zoological Museum Berlin, and Natural History Museum Vienna, a checklist of the freshwater gastropod fauna of Iran was compiled. This checklist contains 73 species from 34 genera and 14 families of freshwater snails; 27 of these species (37%) are endemic to Iran. Two new genera, Kaskakia and Sarkhia, and eight species, i.e., Bithynia forcarti, B. starmuehlneri, B. mazandaranensis, Pseudamnicola georgievi, Kaskakia khorrasanensis, Sarkhia sarabensis, Valvata nowsharensis and Acroloxuspseudolacustris are described as new to science; Ecro-biagrimmi (Clessin & Dybowski, 1888), Heleobia dalmatica (Radoman, 1974) and Hippeutis complanatus (Linnaeus, 1758) are reported for the first time from Iran. Additional field work is highly desirable for a more appropriate evaluation of the extant freshwater snail biodiversity in Iran.

A new species of the genus Bythinella Moquin-Tandon, 1856 (Gastropoda: Risooidea: Bythinellidae), from a spring in Strandzha Mt, SE Bulgaria was described as new for science. By this there are 22 Bythinella species known from Bulgaria.

Recently collected materials from Bosnia & Hercegovina revealed 5 new species of the genus Bythiospeum: B. blihensis n. sp., B. hrustovoensis n. sp., B. maroskoi n. sp., B. plivensis n. sp., and B. petroedei n. sp. In addition a new Islamia could be found, described here as I. steffeki n. sp. Photos of holotypes and paratypes are presented in addition to descriptions.

Two new genera, i.e. Kolevia gen. nov. and Microstygia gen. nov., in addition to the five subterranean species were described here as new for science: Kolevia bulgarica n. gen. n. sp., Microstygia deltchevi n. gen. n. sp., Bythiospeum iltchoi n. sp., Belgrandiella lomica n. sp., and Belgrandiella delevae n. sp. The type species of the new genera are designated, holotypes of the new species are depicted, and a map with the sampling sites is provided.

New investigations of freshwater habitats in mountainous regions and caves revealed six new species of the Rissooidea in Bulgaria. The new species are described here and photos of the holotypes are provided. In addition we added photos of the type localities. Anidentification key of the genera of the Rissooidea of Bulgaria gives an overview of the diversity of this group. The following species are described as new: Strandzhia bythinellopenia sp. n., gen. n., Grossuana slavyanica n. sp., G. derventica n. sp., Radomaniola strandzhica n. sp., Bythiospeum devetakium n. sp., Bythinella rilaensis n.sp. © NwjZ, Oradea, Romania, 2013.

In Greece we found one new species of the genus Pseudorientalia, and two new species from Turkey of the genus groups Torosia n. gen., and Pseudamnicola. We compared these species with the known species from Greece and Turkey and we found that all three species are new. The new species are described here as Pseudorientalia tzekovi n. sp., Pseudamnicola vinarskii n. sp. and Torosia proschwitzi n. gen. n. sp. In addition, D. Georgiev collected in Greece Bythinella charpentieri cabirius Reischütz 1988. Because Reischütz did not depict the anatomy of the species (Reischütz 1988), we provide herewith the morphology of the penis for the first time. © NwjZ, Oradea, Romania, 2012.
