Diagnosis: shell planispiral, strongly haired, umbilicus dish-like, perspective, long bursa copulatrix.

Description of shell: shell almost planispiral, basic colour light brown to yellowish-brown; initial half of the protoconch whorl smooth, then with a very fine and dense radial sculpture; teleoconch surface with strong radial riblets of different size producing an undulating sculptural pattern (magnification required), whole shell with a dense granulation, ventral side of the shell with fine radial riblets and granulation; shells strongly haired, with a hair-free subsutural zone followed by a zone of permanent hairs around the blunt periphery of the shell (hairs in this area 0.8–2.3 mm long), ventral side of the shell usually without hairs, the umbilicus with very short bristles; shell with 5¾–7 regularly increasing and well rounded whorls, with a blunt shoulder; suture very deep; umbilicus dish-like, perspective, diameter 2.4–4.2 mm; aperture very oblique, slightly curved in lateral view; in frontal view subquadrate to obliquely oval, strongly cut out on the left side, peristomial insertions with a gap of 2.6–4.1 mm; parietal callus very thin, undulating; peristome sharp, strongly broadened apically and laterally, slightly reflected basally; oblique columellar reflection, but only covering ca 1/10 of its diameter.

Measurements: H: 5–6.25; D: 12.5–16.5; aH: 4.85–6.4 (2–3.1); aW: 5.9–8.

Details of body (according to 8 animals from 400 m S of Kehrókambos): body dark brown to blackish-greyish, head and eye-stalks grey with a darkbrown tip; tale grey; sole cream with greyish lateral rims; mantle along the lung vein with two stripes of dark-brown pigmentation of rounded spots; secondary ureter opens 0.5 –1.5 mm from the pneumostome, where it splits into two canals.

Morphology of the genital organs ( Fig. 46 View Figs 44–46 ): penis relatively short, slightly thickened, penial glandular tissue covers ca 1/3–1/2 of the total penis length, penial lumen with two equally sized, serrated pilasters, starting at the distal penial wall and stretching to the penial pore, sometimes with short perpendicular folds between the pilasters; vagina very short, somewhat broadened; glandula narrow with a short stalk and a long and scarcely folded part; bursa copulatrix reaching twice the length of the glandula with a pedunculus occupying half of the total length, vesicle strongly inflated; atrial lumen with a large, broad and flat, serrated pilaster, connecting to the vaginal lumen and reaching the proximal end of the vagina; opposite side of the atrial lumen with a semi-circular, keeled fold.

Differential diagnosis: Due to the large planispiral shell with the shouldered whorls, the long hairs and the large dish-like umbilicus, this species cannot be confused with any other species of Lindholmiola . Other differentiating features are the unusually long bursa copulatrix with its clearly separated vesicle, and the specific formation of penial and atrial pilasters.

Remarks: The shells of L. regisborisi are not variable, there are no local forms of this species known so far.

Distribution ( Fig. 43 View Fig ): This species is known to live in a small area in the Lekánis Mountains in Greece, west of the Néstos River, in the lower Néstos valley between Stavroúpoli and Parádissos and east of the Néstos River to Xánthi in Thráki. The record from Marmara Adasi is isolated from the Greek distribution area, and is probably the result of an introduction due to anthropogenic activities. This is the first record of this species for Turkey.
