Part of Lodovico Foresti's (1829-1913) palaeo-malacological legacy is preserved in the G. Capellini Museum of Geology (MGGC) of Bologna University. The Foresti collection at MGGC consists of nearly 1500 Neogene and early Pleistocene molluscs representing 111 taxa, mainly from Emilia-Romagna foothills (Northern Italy). During our examination we were able to trace various type series materials on which any information was assumed to be lost. Herein we document type series material of 11 species-group taxa and designate 9 lectotypes in order to ensure the name's proper and consistent application. Furthermore, for each examined taxon, we report the original description along with comments on present day systematic position and general remarks.
