Аннотация

The taxonomic position of three nominal species of lymnaeid snails placed by Kruglov & Starobogatov (1993) into the subgenus Lymnaea (Pacifimyxas) Kruglov & Starobogatov, 1985, has been re-assessed based on a molecular genetic study of topotypic specimens and an examination of the type series and other materials available. It has been shown that the two species, Lymnaea (Pacifimyxas) magadanensis Kruglov & Starobogatov, 1985 and Lymnaea (Pacifimyxas) streletzkajae Kruglov & Starobogatov, 1985, are identical with the species Kamtschaticana kamtschatica (Middendorff, 1850) and must be treated as its junior synonyms. Hence, Pacifimyxas becomes a junior synonym of Kamtschaticana Kruglov & Starobogatov, 1984. The taxonomic identity of the third species of Pacifimyxas, Lymnaea (Pacifimyxas) perpolita, remains obscure, and this species is considered here as taxon inquirendum. Two other nominal species, Lymnaea aberrans (Westerlund, 1897) and Lymnaea middendorffi (W. Dybowski, 1904), have been synonymized with K. kamtschatica based on morphological and geographical evidence. The lectotype of Limnaea peregra var. middendorffi is designated. The actual level of species richness in the Beringian freshwater malacofauna may be 20–25% lower than it was determined on the basis of the traditional system. Some implications of this outcome for the biogeography of the Beringian freshwater fauna are discussed.
