Value of species
As is true of all physids, the shell is sinistral, or left-handed. The species inhabits temporary water bodies and occurs in the Eurosiberian Boreo-temperate or possibly the Eurasian Boreo-temperate if East Siberia specimens are correctly identified.It may be Holarctic, again if North American specimens are correctly identified.
Distribution: Belgium, British Isles, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Denmark, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Ukraine.
This species inhabits very shallow ponds and ditches, usually ones that dry out periodically.
This is a surprisingly active and lively snail.
Although the animals themselves die when a temporary pond dries out, the eggs are extremely resistant to desiccation.
