Overview

  • Species Common Name Turban Pebblesnail
  • Species Scientific Name Fluminicola turbiniformis

Ecoregions

Special needs

Turban pebblesnails are found in cold, nutrient-poor springs.

Limiting factors

This species has a very restricted distribution. Habitat loss, including spring alteration and decreased water flow, represents a major threat to turban pebblesnails. Sedimentation and nutrient inputs from dredging, mining, road construction, and other land use practices may smother substrates or reduce egg survival.

Conservation actions

Maintain appropriate water flow and quality. Prevent or mitigate for water diversions, dredging, or other activities that could increase sediment or nutrient levels.
