    Freshwater gastropods

    27 freshwater gastropod species (37% of freshwater gastropod species in Iran) are endemic to Iran.

    Species of freshwater gastropods of Iran include:

    Neritidae

    • Neritina mesopotamica Martens 1879 - the first report in Iran was in 2001

    Doubtful Lymnaeidae:

    • Radix lagotis (Schrank, 1803) - It was recorded from Iran by Martens (1874) and by Biggs (1937), but this species most probably does not occur in Iran.

    • Bithynia troschelii (Pasch, 1842)
    • Acroloxus lacustris (Linnaeus, 1758) - It was recorded by Lothar Forcart in 1935. But an analysis of the two specimens from Forcart’s collection (NMB 11516a) identified as Acroloxus lacustris from Mazandaran Province shows that these specimens belong to Acroloxus pseudolacustris.
