Clams of the genus Corbicula Megerle von Mühlfeld, 1811 are among the most invasive aquatic molluscs found in Europe. These clams were recorded in Lake Skadar in Montenegro for the first time. Clams were found in the inflow of the rivers Morača and Plavnica into the lake and also on the banks of the lake. Monitoring the further spread and probable population increase of these non-native and invasive bivalves in Lake Skadar is needed.
