krasnenkovi sp. nov., from the Tiraspol deposits of the Middle Pleistocene of the OkaDon Plain are described.
Parafossarulus priscillae (Girotti, 1972), Viviparus diluvianus (Künth, 1865), and Lithoglyphus jahni Urbasn-
ski, 1975 are reported from Russia for the first time. The status of some problematic species of freshwater gas-
tropods from the Middle Pleistocene of the region studied is discussed. The chronological and environmental
significance of all gastropods studied is given.
Key words: Gastropoda, mollusks, new species, biostratigraphy, paleoenvironment, Middle Pleistocene, Russia.
