KEYWORDS
ABSTRACT
Eobania vermiculata (O. F. Müller) is recorded for the first time in Romania. Other Mediterranean and Balkan species have entered the south of Romania – Dobrogea, or will do so in the near future. We expect the rest of Romania to be invaded, because the Danube is not an insurmountable barrier for some of these species.
