Özet

In this study, the presence of the Chaetogaster limnaei limnaei Baer, 1827, regarded as ectocommensal on the freshwater Mollusca, was observed on the pallial cavity of Pseudobithynia yildirimi Odabasi et al., 2013. This is the first time the presence of C. limnaei limnaei on the Pseudobithynia genus has been reported. Despite the nonhazardous character of the epizoic worm, its ultra-structural and population level of damage on the narrow-range endemic host should be well measured.
