Abstract

We have investigated the diversity of mitochondrial COI gene sequences of Pomatias rivulare populations, originated from the western edge of the species' area. COI gene has not shown any variability, the same haplotype was found in all of the examined Hungarian, Romanian, Serbian and Montenegrin populations, which arises most probably from a rapid range expansion. Based on it, we can rule out that Hungarian populations are relicts and we can conclude that the Pannonicum, the Southern Carpathians and the Eastern Dinarids were colonized very recently, most probably in the Holocene.
