KEYWORDS
ABSTRACT
Species of the genus Caspia Clessin et W. Dybowski, 1887 are only known from brackish waters of the Caspian Sea and the Azov-Black Sea Basins. The first freshwater species of Caspia is described from the Danube. Inclusion of Caspia in the Hydrobiidae is discussed. C. makarovi Anistratenko, 2013 is synonymised with C. knipowitschii Anistratenko, 2013.
