The present work reports on the presence and distribution of an alien and invasive gastropod, Ferrissia fragilis (Tryon, 1863), in freshwater systems of the oceanic islands of the Azores archipelago. First registered in 2007, F. fragilis was found in S. Miguel, Santa Maria, and Graciosa. This study increases to 6 the number of freshwater species of mollusks occurring in the Azores. Remarks are added on the possible impact of invasive species in island freshwater systems.
