Abstract


Based on the original material collected in June 2010, a list of aquatic invertebrates found in the watercourses of the endorheic basins of the South Khangai is given. A total of 129 species, mainly widespread transpalaearctic animals, have been found. In general, the fauna is depleted, but contains a certain number of peculiar endemics.

Keywords
