The Albanian locality data of zoological collectings carried out by the Hungarian Natural History Museum and the Hungarian Academy of Sciences during 30 tours to the Balkans between 2004 and 2010 are enumerated. The localities and methods of collecting are enumerated in chronological order. Sites are marked on the map of Albania.

A contribution to the phylogeny of Albanian Agathylla (Gastropoda, Clausiliidae): insights using morphological data and three mitochondrial markers

Zerconella ( Zerconella ) balkanica sp. nov., a new species of Zerconidae (Acari: Mesostigmata) from central Albania
The new species shows a close morphological relationship to Zerconella (Zerc onella) leitnerae Willmann, 1953, but can be distinguished from the latter by the absence of setae J4, the position of setAE J5, and the size of the dorsal cavities. Expand
