Records from Iran.

Northern Iran (as Planorbis planorbis   : Mansoorian 2000); Mazandaran Province (as Planorbis planorbis   : Eliazian et al. 1979, Mansoorian 2000); Fars Province (as Planorbis planorbis   : Forcart 1935, Starmühlner and Edlauer 1957); IsfahanProvince ( Glöer and Pešić 2010); Yazd Province (as Planorbis persicus   , Planorbis subangulatus   : Biggs 1937, 1971, Starmühlner and Edlauer 1957); Gilan Province (as Anisus (Gyraulus) intermixtus   : Starmühlner and Edlauer 1957); Khuzestan Province (as Planorbis planorbis   , Planorbis planorbis submarginatus   : Starmühlner and Edlauer 1957, as Planorbis planorbis   : Biggs 1971); Markazi Province ( Chu et al. 1968, Massoud and Hedayeti-Far 1979, Mansoorian 2001, Glöer and Pešić 2010).

New records.

Mazandaran Province: IR01-05 [11 ex.]; Markazi Province: IR51-05 [11 ex.]; IR87-05 [3 ex.]; IR88-05 [7 ex.]; IR91-05 [5 ex.]; IR93-05 [1 ex.]; Khorasan Province: IR66-05 [10 ex.]; IR67-05 [2 ex.]; IR68-05 [5 ex.]; IR78a-05 [2 ex.]; IR78b-05 [7 ex.]; Fars Province: IR02-07 [2 ex.]; IR07-07 [2 ex.]; IR26-07 [9 ex.]; IR27-07 [3 ex.].

Associated species.

Physella acuta   , Pseudobithynia zagrosia   , Radix   sp.

Remarks.

The species Planorbis planorbis   and Planorbis intermixtus   can only be distinguished by the number of prostate diverticula ( Glöer and Pešić 2010). All Planorbis   spp. collected in Iran have been anatomically studied and no Planorbis planorbis   could be found. Thus we list the old records from Iran under Planorbis intermixtus   .

In addition, Planorbis subangulatus   Philippi, 1844 and Planorbis persicus   Ancey, 1900 have been mentioned from Iran ( Ancey 1900, Biggs 1937). Both species have been described on the basis of the shells, the morphology of which falls within variability of Planorbis intermixtus   . Thus we list these species under Planorbis intermixtus   .
