Abstract

In this work, basic information on the status of the two genera Caucasotachea C. Boettger 1909 and Lindholmia P. Hesse 1919 is given. The species attributable to these genera are described, and distribution maps are provided. The most importany synonyms are listed. Annotations on specific problems of the phylogenetic reconstruction of the Helicidae are given. Arguments for a separation of Lindholmia from Caucasotachea are presented. Caucasotachea calligera (Dubois de Montpéreux 1840) is for the first time recorded from Turkey.
