Archived specimens of Dreissena, collected as part of a long-term biomonitoring effort in the lower Don and Volga River systems and dating back to 1979, were reexamined. Originally identified as Dreissena polymorpha or variants thereof, some of the specimens were identified to be Dreissena bugensis. Based on this new evidence, the invasion history of D. bugensis in these two river systems was re-evaluated. The finding of D. bugensis in the lower Volga River in the early 1980s rather than in the… CONTINUE READING
