scientific name

Neritina mesopotamica Martens, 1874
status

 

Neritina mesopotamica Martens, 1874   Figs 2a-c View Figure 2

Records from Iran.

Khuzestan Province ( Mansoorian 2001).

Material examined.

Zoological Museum Berlin (ZMB), " Neritina (Neritaea) anatolica   var. mesopotamica, Ras el Ain, Mesopot. Hausknecht".

Remarks.

The height of the largest shell of the examined syntypes from Zoological Museum Berlin was 7 mm. Mansoorian (1994) in his identification key described shell of this species as being 14 mm high. Considering his photos ( Mansoorian 1994), he probably confused it with Neritina schlaeflii   Mousson, 1874 ( Figs 2f-g View Figure 2 ).

Distribution.

Iraq, Iran (Khuzestan).
