We present the first record of the freshwater gastropod Pettancylus tenuis from the Pune region of India. This species, which resembles a limpet, was found in November and December 2020 in a wetland formed near the confluence of Mula and Ram rivers in Pune city. The shell characters of the specimens match the available description of the species. The other records of this species from Maharashtra are nearly 150 km from Pune.
