Nomenclature Gude (1913: 292) introduced Paludestrina Newtoni as replacement name for Paludina pusilla Eichwald, 1838, non Bulimus pusillus Brongniart, 1810 [not Brard as given by Gude], both of which he considered congeneric.
At present, Brongniart’s species is classified in Hydrobia (Tournoueria) (Pacaud & Le Renard 1995), while Eichwald’s species is attributed to Caspiohydobia (Kantor & Sysoev 2006). Therefore, Paludestrina newtoni Gude, 1913 is a junior objective synonym of Caspiohydobia pusilla (Eichwald, 1838).
Golikov & Starobogatov (1866: 353, fig. 1 (4)) introduced Pyrgohydrobia eichwaldiana as new species. Aware of the homonymy (but not of Gude’s replacement name), they considered P. pusilla Eichwald, 1838 as synonymous. Note also that they erroneously attributed the senior homonym to Basterot (1825), who only recombined Brongniart’s species with Paludina. Since Golikov & Starobogatov (1866) did not establish P. eichwaldiana as replacement name (and based it on a different type specimen), it is not a junior objective synonym of P. pusilla Eichwald, 1838.
