- In Moscow oblast, Thorea hispida (Thore) Desv. was first recorded at the beginning of the 20th century. Subsequently, T. hispida was found in 2004 in Moscow River within the territory of Moscow, where it still occurs. This species is included in the Red List of the Russian Federation, the Red List of Moscow oblast, and the Red Lists of some European countries. The new data on the distribution of T. hispida in Moscow River is presented in the paper, and some problems concerning the morphology and conservation status of this species are discussed.
