Abstract

Morphometry and diagnosis of Rhinomias forticornis (Boheman, 1842) are given. Distribution of Rhinomias forticornis is analyzed using known occurrences, original ecological data, correlative species distribution modeling with aspect on Last Glacial Maximum environment are given. To achieve a more realistic and precise spatial pattern, selected climatic variables are combined with remote sensing vegetation indices (LAI and NDVI). Presumable geographic limits of realized niche are Rhine River and Elbe River on the northwest, Dniester River on the northeast. The southeastern barrier in the Carpathians is possibly Tisza River. Since the natural climatic barrier in Asia Minor, it is definitely absent in the Caucasus despite the existence of suitable bioclimatic conditions. This is the first confirmation of Rh. forticornis in Ukraine.
