  author={Kre{\vs}imir Žganec and Sanja Gottstein and Michał Grabowski and Dirk Platvoet},
An overview of all records of the Balkan endemic Echinogammarus thoni is given for streams in Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, and Albania, based on literature data and data from our field studies. For the first time E. thoni was found on 3 of 49 studied localities in Albania. In Montenegro a new record comes from the Orahovica River. In Croatia the species was recorded at 23 of 415 sites in total, with new records in 3 small rivers. The current distribution is from the Jadro River…

Distribution, ecology and conservation status of two endemic amphipods, Echinogammarus acarinatus and Fontogammarus dalmatinus, from the Dinaric karst rivers, Balkan Peninsula
The Balkan Peninsula is recognized to be one of the most important biodiversity hotspots worldwide. However, biogeographic patterns of its freshwater fauna are poorly understood due to the lack of
First record of Gammarus roeselii Gervais, 1835 (Amphipoda: Gammaridae) from Kosovo with ecological notes
Amphipod specimens were collected monthly during 2010 at five sites in five different tributaries of the Toplluhë and Mirushë rivers in Kosovo to find Gammarus roeselii, the only Gammaridae species found in the Republic of Kosovo, and the population structure was dominated by males during most of the research period.

A revision of the European species of the Echinogammarus pungens-group (Crustacea, Amphipoda)
A revision of the species belonging to the group of, or confused with “Gammarus” (now Echinogammarus) pungens H. Milne Edwards, 1840 is given, and a neotype is selected to replace the lost types of Gammarus pungen.
Freshwater Gammarus species from Europe, North Africa and adjacent regions of Asia (Crustacea-Amphipoda). Part II. Gammarus roeseli-group and related species
The Gammarus pulex-group is revised, based on rich material from Europe, North Africa, Asia minor and adjacent areas, and certain stable characters can be distinguished within some taxa, such as the structure of the mandibular palp.
