ABSTRACT
In September 2003 we visited localities of rissooid snails in continental Greece, known from the literature. Nine springs (type localities included), situated in urbanized or cultivated areas, were destroyed, changed or under stress. Localities of Rissooidea in Greece need urgent protection, otherwise the snails may disappear altogether.
