status

 

26. Sarajana apfelbecki ( Brancsik, 1888)  

Findings in Serbia.

Sarajana driniana: Radoman (1975)   .

Sarajana apfelbecki driniana: Radoman (1983)   ; Jovanović (1991).

Morphology. Minute snails. Conical shell is up to 0.8 mm high. Aperture is rounded or angulated at the top, umbilicus is slit like. For more details see Radoman (1983: 104, fig. 116).

Distribution and ecology. Western Balkan endemic species. Type locality is spring in the Kaoštica Village (Višegrad Municipality, BiH). In Serbia this snail was recorded from two small springs near the Perućac Stream (Bajina Bašta Municipality, Tara Mtn., western Serbia).

Other remarks. The species was assigned by Radoman to the monotypic genus, closely related to Belgrandiella   . Later, the distinctness of the genus Sarajana   was questioned, and S. apfelbecki   was classified within the genus Belgrandiella   . Hofman et al. (2019) have showed that based on both, morphological and genetical data, Sarajana   has no close relations to Belgrandiella   , thus restoring its previous status established by Radoman (1983). On the IUCN Red List of threatened species it has been assessed as DD (Seddon, 2010). The species is protected on national level (Annex 1-strictly protected species; Official Gazette of RS 5/2010, 47/2011, 32/2016, 98/2016).
