Nonetheless, within this range there has been some variance among authors as to what constitutes native and introduced. Abstracts of communications. This diet, coupled with their large body mass, high reproductive output and often high densities mean these snails can effect rapid changes in macrophyte community structure, with consequent perturbations of nutrient balance, turbidity and trophic structure of water bodies. Therefore, one way to identify Ramshorn snails regarding their age is to consider their shells. Table 1. M. cornuarietis egg masses and juvenile snails by way of their much smaller size are more difficult to detect, particularly when associated with large quantities of aquatic plant material. For example, in Texas, M. cornuarietis was added to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) list of harmful or potentially harmful aquatic species in 1990. Shell: dextrally coiled.

Estimates of the longevity of M. cornuarietis indicate three years (Cowie, 2002). Marisa cornuarietis are also used in ecotoxicological studies, suggesting specimens could have escaped or been released from a laboratory.

Studies on the fauna of Suriname and other Guyanas, 1(3):41-48. Bursa copulatrix functions as site for receival of sperms of the male and from which any defect sperm cells that aren't able to migrate to the receptaculum seminis, are absorbed. During post-hatching ontogeny shell growth is of planispiral coiling, producing 3.5 to 4 flat whorls in which the juvenile spire is not elevated above the adult whorls and the umbilicus is very widely open.
