The genus Lymnaea (Lamarck, 1799) from Southern Mesopotamia: Are the morphological and anatomical studies enough to solve its complexity?

AbstractMany different morphs of the subgenus Radix sp were morphologically and anatomically studied from different sites of Garmat Ali river, Al-Hammar marshes and some pools near Garmat Ali river. The present study reveals that there is no real Lymnaea auricularia in Mesopotamia region, and possibly, L. cor, L. gedrosiana, L. canalifera and L. euphratica, represent the molluscs fauna of Mesopotamia. However, the DNA sequences of this cryptic subgenus is required to complete our view about it.
