Abstract: 24 species of Hirudinea were found in the alluvial floodplains of 7 rivers of the Kisalföld between 1987 and 1991. Ten of them are typical members of the Potamon biocoenosis and are restricted to the lowlands in the basin of the River Danube. The main distribution patterns are compared with those of some prosobranchiate snails (Thiaridae, Neritidae) and zoogeography is also concerned. A few Pontocaspian or Pontomediterranean species had not been recorded anywhere in Central Europe earlier.Keywords:
