Brephulopsis cylindrica is a species of air-breathing land snail, a terrestrial pulmonate gastropod mollusk in the family Enidae.

Contents

The specific name cylindricus cannot be used for this species because Bulimus cylindricus Menke, 1828 is a junior homonym of Bulimus cylindricus Gray, 1825. The correct name is most probably Brephulopsis fusiformis (Menke, 1828).

Distribution

The distribution of this species includes:

  • Belarus - since 2010
  • Ukraine
