ABSTRACT
The problem of introduced plant and animal species has become increasingly imprtant in recent years. Some of these species are found only in greenhouses or thermal waters (Helisoma trivolvis, Menetus dilatatus, Melanoides tuberculata, Planorbella duryi, Holandriana holandrii, Gulella io, Opeas goodallii, Zonitoides arboreus, Pseudosuccinea columella), others expand quickly and efficiently to favourable habitats (Potamopyrgus antipodarum, Physella acuta, Arion rufus, A. lusitanicus, Sinanodonta woodiana, Corbicula fluminea, Dreissena polymorpha) or form small populations there (Ferrisia clessiniana, Lucilla singleyana, Boettgerilla pallens). This paper presents all information on the distribution of invasive mollusc species in Slovakia, both published and unpublished, available to date.
