ABSTRACT

In water bodies of urban territories, Turbellaria occur mainly in abundance. However, in performing hydrobiological studies they are rarely taken into account. The species richness and composition of Turbellaria were studied in 16 different ponds, lakes, springs, and reservoirs of the megalopolis. During the period of investigations (from 2013 until 2016), 56 species and 26 genera of the orders Catenulida, Macrostomida, Rhabdocoela, Proseriata, and Seriata were found in the studied water bodies. Among them, 28 species were unique to a certain water body, whereas 12 species were registered in 4-13 water bodies. A larger number of species was observed in water bodies with a higher variety of microbiotopes. The obtained results are indicative of a necessity of conservation of water bodies located within urban territories regardless of their types and size.
