About this book

Montenegrina Boettger, 1877 (Mollusca: Gastropoda: Clausiliidae) is one of the few obligate limestone-dwelling door snail genera that have territorially well-defined distribution areas in southeastern Europe. Its allopatric populations inhabit patchy karst outcrops which, in combination with limited active dispersal, provides favourable conditions for radiation into multiple, geographically separated, and morphologically diverse forms.

This paper provides a revision of all known Montenegrina taxa, as well as descriptions of 4 new species and 17 new subspecies. A junior homonym has been replaced by a new name. Montenegrina thus comprises 29 species and 106 subspecies, making it the second most speciose door snail genus in Europe. Of each taxon types or specimens from the type localities are figured, distribution maps and georeferenced locality data are provided.
