ABSTRACT
Recently collected samples from lakes Beyşehir and Eğirdir in Turkey contained one new Pleistocene Valvata which we describe here as †Valvata beysehirensis n. sp. In addition we found two new species of Gyraulus, named G. egirdirensis n. sp. and G. taseviensis n. sp. These species are compared with members of the genera Valvata and Gyraulus known so far from Turkey.
