Rediscovery of the land-snail Sesteria gallandi Bourguignat, 1884 is reported. The original description was based on only one empty shell, which later was lost and never found again, and the exact type locality in Turkey was unknown. Now we found this species in Mardin Province near the village of Sariköy on the Cizre - İdil - Midyat road 20 km after İdil in the forest, in May 2000.
