From the journal Biologia


Two species of the genus Adicella, A. cremisaMalicky, 1972 and A. balcanicaBotosaneanu & Novak,1965, were recorded in the summer period of 2014 which represent the first records of these species in Croatia. The former was collected at two relatively distant sites, the Krapina and the Zrmanja rivers, while the later was collected at the Krupa River. Both species were identified by morphological characteristics as well as DNA barcoding method. We calculated the uncorrected pairwise distances within Adicella and used molecular phylogenetic approach to delimit species. A. cremisa from Croatia showed no significant difference in the mtCOI region and they are highly similar to A. cremisa from Italy. Additionally, the ecological preferences and distribution of Adicella species are presented. Our findings represent a significant contribution to the aquatic biodiversity of the Western Balkans.


We are very grateful to employees of the Central Water Management Laboratory of Hrvatske vode for providing the results of physico-chemical parameters and Marwan Zeitoun (Zagreb) who helped us in the field collections. This study was supported by the “EU Natura 2000 Integration Project (NIP)” funded by the Croatian Ministry of Environmental and Nature Protection, by Croatian Science Foundation under the project (IP-2016-06-9988, DNA Barcoding of Diversity of Croatian Fauna, by M. Kučinić) and University of Zagreb funding. For technical help thank you to prof. Halil Ibrahimi from University of Pristina. We are also very grateful to two anonymous reviewers.
