Records from Iran.

Qom, Tehran and Gilan Provinces ( Martens 1874); Kerman Province ( Biggs 1937).

Remarks.

This species has been described from the Danube (Germany) and most probably does not occur in Iran. According to Subba Rao (1989) Radix lagotis   is a synonym of Radix peregra   (syn. to Radix labiata   ). However, recently Schniebs et al. (2011) clearly showed that Radix lagotis   and Radix labiata   are distinct species.

Distribution.

Europe.
