Abstract

On the basis of inter-simple sequence repeat (ISSR) loci and the nucleotide sequences of nuclear (18S and ITS-1) and mitochondrial genes (COI and 16S), a phylogenetic analysis of the three species of terrestrial mollusks of the family Bradybaenidae (Mollusca, Pulmonata), Bradybaena fruticum Müll., Bradybaena schrencki Midd., and Bradybaena transbaicalia Shileyko, was conducted to clarify their taxonomic status. The analysis showed that Br. fruticum was far apart from the other two species (Br. schrencki and Br. transbaicalia). The genetic distance between the latter puts in doubt their status as distinct species. It is suggested that the species Br. transbaicalia can be treated as a form of Br. schrencki var. transbaicalia.
