This publication is the first complete illustrated catalogue of marine and brackish water Gastropoda of Russia and countries of the former USSR, completely bilingual. The considered fauna includes 1240 taxa of the species group, 350 genera and 110 families. Each species entry consists of the original reference, synonymy, type locality, and data on the types and on the distribution within mentioned region. 1154 species and subspecies are illustrated, mostly by colored photographs. The preference was given to the type specimens of the species, described from the considered territory. None of the types were ever illustrated in color before. For the rest of species the specimens were used, on which the record in Russian and adjacent waters was based. Bibliography includes 790 references; the titles of Russian publications are bilingual.
