A shell of the gastropod Potadoma was discovered in fluvio-lacustrine sediments of the Kalahari (Botswana). A late Pleistocene age of the sediments of ca. 46,000 cal. years BP was established by radiocarbon dating. It is the first record of the freshwater genus Potadoma from southern Africa. Modern counterparts as well as other Pleistocene species of Potadoma had been reported elsewhere from (palaeo-) habitats located at least 2,000 km further in the north, e.g., in the Congo Basin. So far it… Expand
