Starmühlner and Edlauer (1957) mentioned Gangetia uzielliana   from many sampling sites in Yazd Province. An analysis of one lot from the Edlauer collection (NHMW) with the specimens from Yazd Province shows that these specimens ( Fig. 13a-b View Figure 13 ) belong to Farsithyra farsensis   . Further, re-examination of the specimens from Lake Taschk in Fars Province identified by Starmühlner and Edlauer (1957) as Bulimus badiella   (syn. to Bithynia badiella   ) shows that it is also conspecific with Farsithyra farsensis   .


Iran: Fars, Yazd and Hormozgan Provinces.
