ABSTRACT
In the Rybnik dam reservoir (S Poland), as a result of elevated water temperature, the freshwater snail fauna is rather poor. The most characteristic is the dominance of introduced species: Physella acuta (Drap.) and Potamopyrgus antipodarum (Gray), which occur abundantly and cause a progressive reduction in abundance of native snail species.
