ABSTRACT
Biometrical analysis of the material of 668 adult shells of Helicidonta obvoluta (Müll.) from Great Britain, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary showed a high inter-population variation. Similarity analysis revealed two clusters of populations: one from the centre of the range, another inhabiting its fringes. Snails from the Abruzzi Mts (Central Apennines) had shells similar to those from the central populations, though the area is located on the southern fringe of the distribution range.
