Genus Pseudoiglica View in CoL gen. n.


The diagnostic features of the genus are the same as those of the type species, Pseudoiglica pseudoiglica sp. n. The elongated smooth shell shape with open umbilicus differs from all known genera of Pomatiopsidae in tributaries of the Mekong River.


Named for the shell morphology, which is convergent with the subterranean moitesieriid genus Iglica Wagner, 1910 from the western Balkans.
