Abstract


During the field trips to Bosnia & Hercegovina and Montenegro in the years 2015 - 2018 we investigated the subterranean freshwater gastropod fauna in several karst springs. Five subterranean gastropod species new to science had been recorded within the collected material. Three of the new species are assigned to the family Moitessieriidae: Paladilhiopsis cattaroensis n. sp., Paladilhiopsis matejkoi n. sp., Bosnidilhia vitojaensis n. sp. and two to the family Hydrobiidae: Plagigeyeria feheri n. sp. and Stygobium hercegnoviensis n. sp., the latter in the new genus Stygobium.
