Abstract

The Chinese pond mussel Sinanodonta woodiana (Lea, 1834) (Bivalvia: Unionoida: Unionidae), is one of the most invasive aquatic macroinvertebrate species registered in flowing and standing waters throughout most of Europe. During the September 2015 Sava River survey, conducted within the GLOBAQUA project, findings were reported on the most upstream alien species S. woodiana in the Sava River (locality Čatež, Slovenia).
