Bithynia (Bithynia) rubens (Menke, 1830)  

Records from Iran.

North Iran (Caspian Sea) - Eliazian et al. (1979).


This species could not be found in any of the neighbouring countries of Iran. Eliazian et al. (1979) don’t mention the source that led to their identification. The record and taxonomic status of this species is questionable and needs new confirmation.
