Sarajana apfelbecki (Brancsik, 1888) was assigned by Radoman to the monotypic genus, closely related to Belgrandiella Wagner, 1927. Later the distinctness of the genus Sarajana was questioned, and S. apfelbecki classified within the genus Belgrandiella. Our study on Sarajana from five localities in Bosnia and Herzegovina including Vrelo Bosne (type locality of the Sarajana apfelbecki) confirms that the morphology of the characteristic penis, as well as the female reproductive organs, with an exception of the presence of small, vestigial proximal seminal receptacle, overlooked by Radoman contradict a close relationships with Belgrandiella. Two molecular markers: mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) and nuclear histone 3 (H3) were used to infer phylogeny: Sarajana was placed within the Hydrobiidae, Sadlerianinae, but far from Belgrandiella, with Graecoarganiella Falniowski et Szarowska, 2011 as a sister taxon.
