First record of Corbicula fluminalis (Müller, 1774) in Lake Garda (Italy), living in sympatry with Corbicula fluminea (Müller, 1774)

Abstract

The first record of Corbicula fluminalis (Müller, 1774) (Mollusca: Bivalvia: Veneroidea: Corbiculidae) in Lake Garda (Italy) is presented. This clam was observed in July 2008 along the lake shore, with a high number of shells; sampling of lake sediment revealed the presence of live specimens. C. fluminea (Müller, 1774) has already been recorded in Lake Garda since 2002. The need for further studies on the presence and the spread of the two clams and the biodiversity of the invertebrate community of the lake is underlined, in relation to recent records of other invasive species, such as Dikerogammarus villosus (Sowinsky, 1894).
