Abstract

Two colonies of the land snail Monacha fruticola, whose native range is considered limited by the Crimea, were first discovered in Western Ukraine, in Lviv city and in its immediate vicinity (Bryukhovichi settlement). They are the northernmost records of this species, currently known. The present distribution of M. fruticola outside the Crimean peninsula is analyzed.
