The comparison of the gene nucleotide sequences (mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase c subunit I and ITS2 fragment of the nuclear rDNA) indicated significant differences within the lymnaeid species of the genus Ladislavella. For this reason, we postulate retaining of the name Ladislavella occulta (Jackiewicz, 1959) for the molecularly separated lineage of the species occurring in Poland.
