ABSTRACT
A large population of the Caucasian land snail Harmozica ravergiensis was found in Gomel city (South-Eastern Belarus). There were no reports of this species from Belarus before and this find documents its further spreading outside natural range. The material was collected in 2022. Shell and reproductive anatomy of H. ravergiensis from Gomel are described and illustrated. The presence of the species in the area is discussed.
