Abstract

The genus Montenegrina is revised on the basis of material available at the Hungarian Natural History Museum (Budapest), Naturhistorisches Museum Wien (Vienna), and the Naturmuseum Senckenberg (Frankfurt am Main), as well as newly discovered populations. The following new taxa are described: M. haringae sp. n., M. lillae sp. n., M. prokletiana sp. n., M. sturanyana sp. n., M. grammica erosszoltani ssp. n., M. grammica improvisa ssp. n., M. hiltrudae desaretica ssp. n., M. hiltrudae selcensis ssp. n., M. laxa delii ssp. n., M. nana barinai ssp. n., M. prokletiana kovacsorum ssp. n., M. rugilabris golikutensis ssp. n., M. rugilabris gregoi ssp. n., M. skipetarica danyii ssp. n., M. skipetarica gurelurensis ssp. n., M. skipetarica pifkoi ssp. n., M. skipetarica puskasi ssp. n., M. sporadica tropojana ssp. n., M. sturanyana gropana ssp. n., M. sturanyana ostrovicensis ssp. n., and M. tomorosi hunyadii ssp. n. A neotype is designated for M. helvola (Küster, 1860), and M. cattaroensis antivaricostata nom. n. was introduced to replace the junior homonym Clausilia umbilicata costata Boettger, 1907 (non Pfeiffer, 1928). Of each taxon types or specimens from the type localities are figured, and distribution maps are provided.
