Title:Freshwater snail surveys of wetlands in northern Illinois
Author(s):Tiemann, Jeremy S.
Subject(s):freshwater snails
exotic species
non-native species
Abstract:Northern Illinois wetlands were sampled for freshwater snails to obtain baseline data on the distribution of the assemblage. Twenty-six sites were sampled in the region during 2012 and 2013. Thirteen species were collected as live or fresh-dead shells, three species were found only as relict shells, and 16 species known from natural history museums were not encountered during the 2012-2013 surveys. The species composition, including extant and rare species, is similar to those reported in surrounding states.
