The state of three populations of the adventitious species H. pomatia was studied on the basis of conchiometric, phenetic and genetic methods. According to the obtained data, the two newly described populations from the Belgorod and Lugansk regions differ both in metric and morphological indicators, as well as in the frequencies of alleles of isoenzyme loci. The reason for such disparity may be genetic-automatic processes, natural selection in newly developed territories, as well as chaotic invasion from various localities, either from native range, or from nearby biotopes.
