Range Description

Theodoxus jordani is the most wide-spread representative of the genus in western Asia. It is found in the whole Orontes drainage (Syria-Lebanon) and in nearly all other larger hydrographic systems of Lebanon (Bssneck 2011). It also occurs in Israel and in the Palestinian Occupied Territories in the Jordan Basin (type locality) and in Lake Kinneret (Israel), in Jordan, e.g in the Yarmouk River and at Azraq Oasis (Elkarmi and Ismail 2006), in Turkey in the southern coastal region e.g. in Hatay Province (Schtt 1982, Yildirim et al. 2006) as well as in Iraq in the Shatt al-Arab (Abdul-Sahib and Abdul-Sahib 2008) and in the adjacent Khuzestan Province in SW Iran (Mansoorian 2001). If the populations along the Mediterranean and the populations at the Persian Gulf do belong to the same species, is a pertinent question.
