Abstract

Genetic variation of Baikal endemic gastropods Liobaikalia stiedae was analyzed using the nucleotide sequence of the COI mitochondrial gene fragment. High intraspecific mtDNA differentiation is revealed, while local populations can be more similar to related species than to other populations.
