This volume covers the Vitrinidae, commonly referred to as glass snails. The system of the family Vitrinidae in the present work follows the monograph of Schileyko . The family Vitrinidae is used for the following genera and subgenera occurring in the territories of the central, eastern and southern Palaearctic: Eucobresia, Phenacolimax s. str., Phenacolimax (Trochovitrina) stat. nov., Semilimax s. str., Semilimax (Hessemilimax) and Vitrina. There is only one change in Schileyko's system: on the basis of inner morphology, for the former genus Trochovitrina here a subgeneric rank is determined. In total, 8 species with one subspecies were established for this area and one species included as possibly present.
