Dreissena (Zebra mussel)

Wikipedia Abstract

Dreissena is a genus of small freshwater mussels in the family Dreissenidae. The exact taxonomy of the species within the genus Dreissena is, however, uncertain.As Kantor et al commented, "...the Russian specialists on freshwater molluscs appeared to be “splitters” comparing with their western colleagues. This sometimes leads to extreme differences in opinion on species number and taxonomy of some groups.
