However, above a level of 6.8‰, survivorship declined rapidly, such that at 13.6‰ and above, 100% mortality occurring within 3-7 days. Those species synonymized with P. maculata are listed as “Other scientific names” in the section on Identity in this P. maculata datasheet. Genetic exchange between two freshwater apple snails, Pomacea canaliculata and Pomacea maculata invading East and Southeast Asia. In: EPPO Global database, Paris, France: EPPO. Impact of invasive apple snails on the functioning and services of natural and managed wetlands. Among New World genera, the three species of Marisa are readily distinguished from species of Pomacea as they are planispirally coiled (the coils are almost flat) and are thus known commonly as giant ramshorn snails. Los Banos, Philippines: Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice), 243-254, Dillon RT, 2006. Aquatic snails; permit requirements for importation and interstate movement. Pomacea maculata; the increasing thickness of opercula as the snail increases in age and size. There is much less knowledge of the general biology P. maculata than for the more well-known P. canaliculata (Hayes et al., 2015). 2008. (2008) recorded P. maculata, there were no previous records, the exceptions being Cambodia and Thailand. The distribution of P. maculata in Asia now broadly overlaps that of P. canaliculata (Hayes et al., 2008, 2012). Out of South America: multiple origins of non-native apple snails in Asia. Alabama Malacological Research Center. Applesnails are tropical to subtropical organisms and cannot survive below 50°F in the winter (Florida DOACS, 2002). Acta Oecologica, http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.actao.2012.10.002:1-12, Horn KC, Johnson SD, Boles KM, Moore A, Siemann E, Gabler CA, 2008. VO2 increased with body size and temperature, but P. maculata, especially juveniles, was not found to be an especially good oxygen regulator under hypoxic conditions in comparison with other freshwater snail species, perhaps reflecting its association with lotic (flowing water) habitats. Eggs or hatchlings can be accidentally introduced to new locations as P. maculata females will lay clutches on any hard surface, including boats (EFSA Panel on Plant Health, 2012). Educational efforts should advise small children not to play with snails. Consequently, the use of common names should be avoided to reduce confusion within this taxonomically difficult group (Hayes et al., 2009b). Applesnails are larger than most freshwater snails and can be separated from other freshwater species by their oval shell which has the umbilicus (the axially aligned, hollow, cone-shaped space within the whorls of a coiled mollusc shell) of the shell perforated or broadly open. In addition, apple snails in general occur on a number of other invasive species watch lists (e.g. Similar range expansions related to climate change could also occur elsewhere, for instance in Korea and Japan. In a similar study to that of Burlakova et al. Therefore, the date of its first introduction to the region is not known. Pomacea maculata; numerous egg clutches laid on wild taro (Colocasia esculenta). Heavy predation on freshwater bryozoans by the golden apple snail, Pomacea canaliculata Lamarck, 1822 (Ampullariidae).

Hatchlings are likely to rely on detritus and algal-based resources for food, although they also readily consume lettuce in the laboratory. by Francis, R. Baited with a proprietary blend of food resources, the trap attracts snails, which enter, but the shape of the trap makes it more difficult for them to exit. daily) to remove snails. During desiccation, water loss was greater at higher RH values and higher temperatures, and smaller snails lost proportionately more water than larger snails.

The list of references for all nonindigenous occurrences of Pomacea maculata are found here. Either or both P. maculata and P. canaliculata were imported to Thailand by the aquarium trade but probably also for food (Keawjam and Upatham, 1990). 2017). Hatchlings of the two species are readily distinguished. Species in the Old World genus Pila, which also bear large, round, generally brownish or greenish dextrally coiling shells, have a brittle and calcified as opposed to a corneous and somewhat flexible operculum. Journal of Molluscan Studies, 74(1):47-54. http://mollus.oxfordjournals.org/cgi/content/abstract/74/1/47, Bouchet P, Rocroi JP, 2005. Molluscs are a very diverse group, with at least 85,000 species named, and estimates of up to 200,000 species occurring worldwide. Cowie, R.H. 2002. The shoulder of the whorls is angulate. Size-dependent effects of an invasive herbivorous snail (Pomacea canaliculata) on macrophytes and periphyton in Asian wetlands. The number of eggs in a clutch is greater in P. maculata but the eggs are smaller; hence hatchlings of P. canaliculata are roughly twice as big as those of P. maculata (Hayes et al., 2012). by Joshi, R. C.\Sebastian, L. S.]. Risk of future introduction of P. maculata remains high because of two primary vectors: the aquaculture industry and the aquarium trade. Golden apple snail: its occurrence and importance in Suriname's rice ecosystem. International Journal of Pest Management, 40(2):199-206, Hayes KA, Cowie RH, Jorgenson A, Schultheib R, Albrecht C, Thiengo SC, 2009. For example, a number of studies have been undertaken on consumption of plants by apple snails in Laos (Carlsson and Lacoursière, 2005; Carlsson and Brönmark, 2006) and Thailand (Carlsson et al., 2004a). Clutches should be physically destroyed by crushing. Journal of Molluscan Studies, 80(1):62-66. http://mollus.oxfordjournals.org/, Yusa Y, 2001. Herbivore preference for native vs. exotic plants: generalist herbivores from multiple continents prefer exotic plants that are evolutionarily naïve. Hawaii Journal of Medicine and Public Health, 72(6, Suppl. The larvae enter the person’s bloodstream and eventually end up in the brain, where after moving around for some time, they die. Cowie, 2002) or may have presented data from one species that in fact were derived from the other. The best known classes of molluscs are the Gastropoda (snails and slugs), Bivalvia (clams, oysters, mussels and scallops) and Cephalopoda (squids, cuttlefishes, octopuses and nautiluses). The multi-authored book edited by Joshi and Sebastian (2006) also brought together considerable knowledge, with a primary focus on agriculture in Asia. The neurological damage and immune reaction, the latter caused especially by the dead worms, cause eosinophilic meningitis. Hawaii Journal of Medicine and Public Health. Widespread. Joshi, S.C. Thiengo, and R.H. Cowie. At ph 3.5, 20% survived the full 28 days, while at ph values of 5.5-9 all but 0-2 snails out of 15-20 survived. Common name of its synonymous name Pomacea insularum is the island applesnail. (2006), Rawlings et al. New type material — neotype ( Hayes et al . Another invasive apple snail, Marisa cornuarietis, has been suggested as a biocontrol agent for invasive weeds. Nonetheless, it seems that together, these two large-bodied freshwater snails have flourished in locations to which they have been introduced and become invasive because of their high fecundity, generalized feeding, wide abiotic tolerances and close associations with humans. In: Molluscs as crop pests. We are working to provide illustrated descriptions, ecological information, distribution, habitat, history, reproduction, management approaches, and other useful information about the species listed. P. maculata has separate sexes with female size typically exceeding male size. The majority of references identify Argentina as the original source of the introduced Pomacea (e.g. In: Global advances in ecology and management of golden apple snails [ed. The species with which P. maculata is most likely to be confused is P. canaliculata. Prime waterfront real estate: apple snails choose wild taro for oviposition sites. New Jersey, USA: TFH Publications, Inc, 121 pp, Peterson RT, 1980. A.]. Hayes et al. It has been reported from estuaries (EFSA Panel on Plant Health, 2012) but its salinity tolerance probably prevents its extensive penetration into such brackish habitats (Ramakrishnan, 2007), although eggs remain viable when exposed to periodic inundations typical of a tidal regime and modest, albeit reduced, growth and survival occurs at moderate salinities (5 and 10‰) (Martin and Valentine, 2014). cuprinaReeve, 1856, leviorSowerby, 1909, lineataSpix in Wagner, 1827), or mis-spell the genus or species names (e.g. It feeds on aquatic plants and can devastate rice (in South-east Asia), taro (in Hawaii; although P. maculata is not in Hawaii) and other aquatic or semi-aquatic crops. plants and wood) in preference to artificial substrates (Kyle et al., 2011). Newly laid clutches have a deeper pink colour and a noticeable gelatinous nature before they dry out and develop. P. maculata probably accounts for some proportion of the total amount; however, it remains difficult to determine whether or not past studies were based on P. maculata, P. canaliculata or a mixture of the two species. However, no studies have examined the survivorship or viability of any possible hybrids between the two species. 2), 11-14. http://www.hjmph.org/HJMPH_Jun13Suppl2.pdf, Romi L. Burks, Department of Biology, Southwestern University, 1001 East University Avenue, Georgetown, TX 78626, USA, Amy E.

Hill, Department of Biology, Southwestern University, 1001 East University Avenue, Georgetown, TX 78626, USA. The giant applesnail can tolerate a salinity of up to 8 PSU (practical salinity units; Underwood et al., 2019). The other Old World genera (Afropomus, Forbesopomus, Saulea) include only a small number of species and are not likely to be encountered. Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Management Data Series No. In: Global advances in ecology and management of golden apple snails [ed. A concerted effort must then be made (perhaps involving volunteers) to remove and destroy as many egg clutches as possible and perhaps to focus efforts on collecting female snails as they deposit clutches, typically around dawn. PLoS ONE, No.March:e17227. Biological Invasions, 11:1963-1972, Simberloff D, Holle BVon, 1999. This requires the user to check the trap often (i.e. Nonetheless, in areas of Asia where introduced populations of P. maculata and P. canaliculata overlap (i.e. The species was established in Texas by 1989, in Florida by the mid to late 1990s and in Georgia by 2005 (Rawlings et al., 2007) and continues to spread (Byers et al., 2013). As for any invasive species, early detection, prompt eradication and strong regulation of transport are the best defenses against introduction and establishment of P. maculata as an alien invasive species. The two species are extremely similar, and differences in size and subtle qualitative differences in shell shape fall within the range of individual variation, making them very difficult to distinguish morphologically (Hayes et al., 2012). In parts of South America, large piles of apple snail shells can accumulate under the favorite perches of snail kites (R.H. Cowie, personal observations). Pomacea maculata; recently dislodged male and female mating pair, with visible male organ extended. 2):11-14. http://www.hjmph.org/HJMPH_Jun13Suppl2.pdf, Teo SS, 2004. The study in Thailand, however, may well have been on P. maculata, as the size of the snails reported in this study exceeded the maximum dimension given by Hayes et al. Barnes et al.

Nonetheless, the extent of predation on P. maculata eggs by different species remains unclear. (2009b) and showed that P. maculata and P. canaliculata are not particularly closely related and are not sister taxa. The tentacles are long and tapering, highly extensible and with large but short eye stalks at their outer bases. Position and number of penial sheath glands for a number of ampullariid species have been tabulated by Hayes et al. P. maculata occurs in shallow parts of slow-moving bodies of fresh water, close to riverbanks, at the edges of lakes and in ponds, in wetlands and irrigated wetland croplands and in drainage/irrigation ditches. Ambio, 25(7):443-448, Ng TH, Tan SK, Low MEY, 2014. IUCN Red List.

Nonetheless, the global need to replace expensive sources of protein (e.g. They occur in both aquatic (marine and fresh-water) and terrestrial environment… By all field accounts, little damage occurs to the egg clutches. Reported : New Zealand Mud Snail. Deliberate introduction for food may therefore now be rare. In: Gulf of Mexico Science, 1 (2) 30-38. by Joshi, R. C.\Sebastian, L. S.]. P. maculata, however, has not been recorded so widely in Asia (in part no doubt because of misidentification as P. canaliculata) and may still be spreading. Pathways for transmission of angiostrongyliasis and the risk of disease associated with them. the Global Invasive Species Database of the IUCN Invasive Species Specialist Group). In the USA, the US Department of Agriculture through its Plant Protection and Quarantine program prohibits interstate transport of P. maculata without a permit. 'Snail Busters' apple snail trap as deployed in shallow water. In: The mollusks: a guide to their study, collection, and preservation [ed. Armand Bayou Nature Center, Houston, Texas. Apple snails, perhaps including P. maculata, are a major component of the diet of caiman lizards (Dracaena spp.) The apple snails of the Americas: addenda and corrigenda. For example, the whorls of P. scalaris, P. bridgesii and P. diffusa have a distinctive stair-like appearance, with the steps more sharply prominent in P. scalaris; the shell of P. papyracea is fragile and horny, with an almost black periostracum; and the shell of P. urceus is thick, solid, and black, with distinctive transverse ridges. (2012). For professional researchers, because of the anatomical, physiological and behavioural adaptations of apple snails, the group in general provides a powerful model for addressing a number of ecological and evolutionary questions (Hayes et al., 2009b). In: Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society, 166 723-753. (2011) found no clear relationship between female size and clutch size. A global phylogeny of apple snails: Gondwanan origin, generic relationships, and the influence of outgroup choice (Caenogastropoda: Ampullariidae). Names and dates are hyperlinked to their relevant specimen records. Mochida, 1991) and molecular study confirms the area of the Uruguay and La Plata rivers around Buenos Aires as the most likely specific locality (Hayes et al., 2008). They estimated the cost of application at $2.50/lb [$5.50/kg]. It remains unclear whether hybridization occurred only in the introduced range, or in the native range prior to introduction of the two species (including hybrids) to Asia. Continued surveillance for pink clutches on any number of hard substrates should be implemented (Burks et al., 2010; Kyle et al., 2011). Consumption of another three plants (Pontederia lanceolata, Sagittaria kurziana and Myriophyllum heterophyllum) was 1-2 g/g/d and snails showed minimal consumption (0.032 – 0.049 g/g/d) of E. densa, Alternanthera philoxeroides and E. crassipes. Thailand), the dates given by Mochida (1991) for introduction of Pomacea to particular countries can therefore be taken as the earliest date that P. maculata might have been introduced to those countries.
