Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Davis et al. (1989: 341-342, 347) suggested that the North American Hydrobia truncata (Vanatta, 1924), the type species of Ecrobia, was introduced from Europe and would then possibly be a synonym of H. ventrosa which is representative of Ventrosia Radoman, 1977. Even if the species are considered as separate, they are to be considered congeneric and therefore the older name Ecrobia must be given preference over Ventrosia. Haase et al. (2010) use Ecrobia as valid genus.  [details]
