In fact, no published study has suggested that P. maculata consumes substantial quantities of E. crassipes quickly. The proteins of P. maculata and P. canaliculata do however differ in their spectral properties, which may be another character that would help to distinguish the two species (Pasquevich et al., 2014). P. maculata showed a lower range of consumption (between 10 % and 34 %) on a second subset of plants (Alternanthera philoxeroides, Sagittaria graminea, Panicum hemitomon, Scirpus maritimus, Canna glauca, Pontederia cordata, S. californicus,). Red List of Threatened Species. 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. Widespread. Loss of native snails in many places is considered a direct result from apple snail introductions and/or an indirect result from pesticide use to control them. Hayes et al. (2010) noted that P. maculata in Texas laid a disproportional number of clutches on riparian vegetation, specifically taro (Colocasia esculenta). BMC Evolutionary Biology. attempt to adhere to some type of substrate. Pomacea maculata is a species of large, globular, freshwater snail native to tropical and sub-tropical South America. Given these discrepancies in feeding patterns and the wide diversity of plants consumed, P. maculata should not be used for biological control of invasive plants and more studies need to be conducted to fully understand the mechanisms underlying the preferences of P. maculata for these plant species. The shells of P. paludosa are smaller, thinner and with a smaller aperture, making them easier to handle than P. maculata, which are then more likely to be dropped. The ranges of both these species overlap with that of P. maculata and they are probably significant predators of this species. crayfish) for food (Byers et al., 2012). 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. by Joshi, R. C.\Sebastian, L. S.]. Applied Entomology and Zoology. Snail Busters apple snail trap as delivered for deployment to control apple snails. Generally, the patterns of host plant consumption by P. maculata were similar among the above studies, although with a few exceptions. In the past, this species has been misidentified as P. bridgesii, which is generally larger. (2012). Although eradication of the species was unsuccessful, the outcomes of this effort suggested that a diversity of fishes might help control the enormous numbers of small snail hatchlings produced by P. maculata. In: Global advances in ecology and management of golden apple snails [ed. Hatchlings of the two species are readily distinguished.

Genetic exchange between two freshwater apple snails, Pomacea canaliculata and Pomacea maculata invading East and Southeast Asia. Novel animal defenses against predation: a snail neurotoxin combining lectin and pore-forming chains that resembles plant defense and bacteria attack toxins. (2013) reported infected P. maculata in Louisiana but the full extent of the distribution of infected P. maculata across the south eastern USA is not known. Proceedings of International Workshop on Biological Invasions of Ecosystems by Pests and Beneficial Organisms. P. maculata is a freshwater snail native to a wide geographical area in South America from the Rio de la Plata in Argentina and Uruguay to the Amazon in Brazil. Numerous cultural control measures have been implemented for P. canaliculata (see the Invasive Species Compendium datasheet for P. canaliculata) and are probably also applicable to P. maculata. One effort to detect and capture snails involves traps (Martin et al., 2012; Dyke, 2013). P. maculata is less tolerant than P. canaliculata of cold temperature (Yoshida et al., 2014), which may restrict its northerly spread in Asia compared to P. canaliculata, yet still allow it to spread further north than its current distribution. Impact of invasive apple snails on the functioning and services of natural and managed wetlands. Global Advances in Ecology and Management of Golden Apple Snails [ed. Climatic modelling indicates that it could expand further north in the USA (Byers et al., 2013). (2008), the difficulty of distinguishing P. canaliculata from P. maculata meant that not only were their true ranges in South America not understood but also that the correct identities of ampullariids in Asia and other locations to which they have been introduced were not known. However, there is a risk of further spread of the snails, and consequent negative impacts, associated with such efforts. http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0056812 DOI:10.1371/journal.pone.0056812, CABI, Undated. in South America (Perera and Walls, 1996).

Those species synonymized with P. maculata are listed as âOther scientific namesâ in the section on Identity in this P. maculata datasheet. (2004a) found that apple snail herbivory contributed to a shift in alternative stable states of a lake from a clear to a turbid condition. Nonetheless P. maculata may also be able to cause such an impact, which might be expected given the larger size of the species relative to P. canaliculata and other invertebrates. The molecular genetics of P. maculata has been less studied than that of P. canaliculata, although the two species, previously difficult to distinguish, can now be readily distinguished based on DNA markers; they are not sister species (Hayes et al., 2008, 2009b, 2012). Golden form of the golden apple snail, Pomacea canaliculata. Additional educational materials should also be distributed to alert community members to new infestations, which should be reported promptly to the authorities (Martin et al., 2012). The availability of large snail populations in these areas might draw attention to their culinary potential and result in the creation of an aquaculture industry where one did not formerly exist.

P. canaliculata spread rapidly through much of Southeast Asia following its initial introduction to Taiwan. The pink colour of the eggs of P. maculata comes from the carotenoproteins that probably play roles in protection against solar radiation, stabilizing and transporting antioxidant molecules and helping to protect embryos from desiccation and predators (Pasquevich et al., 2014), as they do in P. canaliculata (Dreon et al., 2013). (15 cm) high and are higher than they are wide. In this study, there was no measurable consumption by P. maculata of Nymphaea odorata, T. latifolia, P. illinoensis, M. aquaticum, C. esculenta, Hydrocotyle umbellata, Pistia stratiotes and S. lancifolia. In contrast, ephemeral agricultural habitats contained extremely high densities (>130 snails per square meter), and furthermore, snail size and numbers varied through time, both peaking in autumn.

Impact of invasive apple snails on the functioning and services of natural and managed wetlands. Ampullaria georgii Williams, 1889. Similarly, following the introduction of P. maculata to Spain, climate matching combined with two global warming scenarios identified areas in Europe that may be susceptible (EFSA Panel on Plant Health, 2012). PLoS ONE, 8(2):e56812. It is commonly confused with any number of similar large apple snails, including the well-known invasive golden apple snail Pomacea canaliculata (listed among â100 of the worldâs worst invasive speciesâ). Gainesville, Florida, USA: United States Geological Survey.

Washington, USA: Island Press, 101-108, Way MJ, Islam Z, Heong KL, Joshi RC, 1998. Depending on the density of the population and the availability of resources, traps may be deployed for longer periods with the added security of a grate. A reference to P. maculata as 'giant Peruvianâ or âInca' snails (Dillon, 2006) does not reflect the broad distribution of this species. The distribution in this summary table is based on all the information available. by Joshi, R. C.\Sebastian, L. S.].

(2012) in their detailed description of P. canaliculata but was within the range of size of P. maculata. 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). http://nas.er.usgs.gov, Wada T, 1997.

Similar range expansions related to climate change could also occur elsewhere, for instance in Korea and Japan. The most northern latitude at which P. maculata populations occur is the Ebro River delta in Spain (EFSA Panel on Plant Health, 2012; Horgan et al., 2012; Andre and Lopez, 2013), where it has been introduced. (2006), Rawlings et al. On a small scale, the effects may not provoke action, but populations with higher densities would magnify this pattern and increase the ecological impact. It is also an important vector of various parasites including the nematode Angiostrongyulus cantonensis, which causes human eosinophillic meningitis (Lv et al., 2011; Yang et al., 2013)â.

In: Global advances in ecology and management of golden apple snails [ed. The apple snails of the Americas: addenda and corrigenda. Using a similar approach, Morrison and Hay (2011) conducted paired feeding experiments that gave P. maculata the choice between plants found outside their native distribution (i.e. And although both P. maculata and P. canaliculata possess two dorsal penis sheath glands, P. maculata lacks the medial gland, whereas P. canaliculata lacks the basal gland. The thin fragile shells can reach up to 6 in. http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0056812, Carlsson N, Kestrup A, Martensson M, NystrÃ¶m P, 2004. Cowie RH, 1995.

Thus, much of the literature published prior to these clarifications, especially in Asia, either confounded data from these two species (e.g. in Japan (Matsukura et al., 2013). In: Biological Conservation, 78(1/2) [ed. For example, biologists in Mobile, Alabama, reported anecdotal eradication of a population of snails found in a small neighbourhood lake; constant surveillance of the pond and destruction of clutches were reported as the key mechanisms for the eradication success (Martin et al., 2012). During desiccation, water loss was greater at higher RH values and higher temperatures, and smaller snails lost proportionately more water than larger snails.

In: Global advances in ecology and management of golden apple snails [ed. 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. Their results imply that P. maculata range expansion could have a direct negative impact on P. paludosa populations, especially considering that juvenile survival may be particularly important for increasing population densities (Burlakova et al., 2009). In permanent habitats, such as ponds and lakes, they observed low densities (fewer than two snails per square meter), stable populations, and the same size structure through the year. In North America, it has been introduced to tidal freshwater regions of Florida, Alabama, Louisiana, and Texas. Consequently, the use of common names should be avoided to reduce confusion within this taxonomically difficult group (Hayes et al., 2009b). Pagka karon wala pay siak nga nalista ubos niini niya.

Based on field and other observations of the snails in the USA and on the architecture of the plants, C. esculenta, Pontederia lanceolata, Sagittaria spp., Eichhornia crassipes, Pistia stratoites, Alternanthera philoxeroides, Schoenoplectus californicus, Scirpus maritimus, Thalia dealbata and Typha latifolia could provide a suitable substrate for P. maculata females to lay egg clutches. (2012), the common name âisland apple snailâ became inappropriate. Ampullaria castelnaudii Hupé, 1857. The snail is a generalist, and a large number of crops (rice, kangkong, lotus, taro, and many more) and wild species are hosts. Common name of its synonymous name Pomacea insularum is the island applesnail. Molluscs are a very diverse group, with at least 85,000 species named, and estimates of up to 200,000 species occurring worldwide. 14 (4), 701-712. http://www.blackwell-synergy.com/loi/ddi DOI:10.1111/j.1472-4642.2008.00483.x.

The first sign of an infestation is usually the presence of pink eggs, which are highly visible above the water line. In addition to poisoning the snails themselves, all other invertebrates in the ecosystem, desirable or not, native or introduced, will be killed. Fertilization occurs internally, followed by oviparous development. Barnes et al. However, efforts have been made to facilitate consumption of P. maculata by the kites, for example managers have installed perches close to the water body where the birds can extract the snails rather than spending energy taking them back to a more distant location (Pias et al., 2012). Species identification from archived snail shells via genetic analysis: a method for DNA extraction from empty shells. EPPO Global database. 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. However, Mochida (1991) mapped the spread of Pomacea, and although he did not distinguish species it is apparent that there was already an awareness that at least two species were involved, i.e. Journal of Molluscan Studies, 67(3):275-279, Yusa Y, 2006. Nonetheless, the global need to replace expensive sources of protein (e.g. Female snails lays clutches of pink eggs (about 250 at a time, but this is very variable), above water on parts of plants and on rocks (Photo 4).

The initial introduction of this snail into Southeast Asia was intentional, as both a food commodity for export and an important local source of protein. Thus, the natural range of P. canaliculata was formerly thought to extend from temperate Argentina into northern Amazonia (Cazzaniga, 2002), the species having been confused with P. maculata. With the global need to find alternate protein sources, the culinary industries of various countries might explore further the use of apple snails as a local delicacy or ethnic cuisine. Consequently, species boundaries have been very difficult to assess based solely on conchology. Present in south-western Japan and the Ryukyu Islands, Introduced from elsewhere in east or South-East Asia. However, when P. maculata from Texas was fed 26 plant species in no-choice tests E. crassipes was the sixth most consumed (Burlakova et al., 2009). The natural variant has a brown, striped shell and a dark flesh. However, experimental evidence (Ramakrishnan, 2007) indicates that P. maculata can survive long periods (i.e. Burlakova et al. Houston, Texas, USA. Ampullaria crosseana Hidalgo, 1871. However, trade practice incorporates the collection and sale of young, immature snails that are much more difficult (or even impossible for a non-expert) to identify than are adults. There are molecular method to separate some species. However, the apical gland of P. maculata is distinguished from that of P. canaliculata by lacking a rugose central glandular surface bordered by smoother glandular tissue. Predation on eggs of the apple snail Pomacea canaliculata (Gastropoda: Ampullariidae) by the fire ant Solenopsis geminata. There are no common names associated with this taxon. Results from analysis of the nuclear marker EF1-Î± are more enigmatic, with a few individuals identified as one or the other species on the basis of COI having EF1-Î± sequences corresponding to the opposite species, indicating possible hybridization events, or incomplete lineage sorting at this locus (Hayes et al., 2012; Matsukura et al., 2013). In Florida, initial control efforts in Wellmanâs Pond focused on hand collection of snails but this proved extremely time consuming and ineffective. The length of the life cycle depends very much on temperature and the occurrence of seasons. 1-12. http://dx.org/10.1016/j.actao DOI:10.1016/j.actao.2012. In the USA, P. maculata has been recorded from Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, possibly North Carolina, South Carolina and Texas. The most common apple snail in aquarium shops is Pomacea bridgesii, also called Pomacea diffusa, (the spike-topped apple snail). Ampullaria haustrum Reeve, 1856. The United States Department of Agriculture Plant Protection and Quarantine Division (USDA-APHIS-PPQ) restricts the possession of most members of the genus Pomacea and requires a permit for their use in research or interstate transport (USDA-APHIS, 2013). In general, Pomacea were not well liked as a food in Asia and markets did not develop (e.g. As in almost all studies undertaken on Pomacea in East and South-East Asia, especially prior to the rigorous distinction of P. canaliculata and P. maculata by Hayes et al. The shell has 5 to 6 whorls which are separated by a deep, indented suture, hence the species name 'canaliculata' or 'channeled'. The two species differ most clearly genetically, having no shared haplotypes and a mean genetic distance of 0.135 at cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) (Hayes et al., 2012). Introduction of the apple snail Pomacea canaliculata and its impact on rice agriculture. Pomacea canaliculata is native to Argentina and Uruguay, while P. maculata is more widely distributed from the La Plata region of Argentina to the Amazon basin of Brasil, including Uruguay and Paraguay, and possibly Bolivia, Ecuador and Peru. Wallingford, UK: CABI, CABI, Undated a. CABI Compendium: Status inferred from regional distribution. This may have indirectly contributed to the spread of P. maculata. Due to the confusion in species identification, it is impossible to determine exactly when P. maculata was initially introduced to Asia, much less into individual countries. The adult shell is globose, thick, occasionally malleate (predominantly in Brazilian specimens) but generally smooth (sometimes with faint axial growth lines) and ~35 to >165 mm in shell height. Denisia, Neue Serie (New series), 28:283-286, Wood TS, Anurakpongsatorn P, Chaichana R, Mahujchariyawong J, Satapanajaru T, 2006. The island applesnail, Pomacea insularum, appears nearly … (2008) reported introduced P. maculata in the wild in Asia from Malaysia (Borneo), Cambodia, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand and Vietnam (the report of Taiwan in Table 1 of that paper is incorrect). The removal of P. maculata allowed for the persistence of important aquatic vegetation. It is possible that snails (especially small juveniles or hatchlings) or their eggs may also be transported on wetland plants or propagules used for outplanting, as suggested for P. canaliculata (Cowie, 2002; Levin et al., 2006). congeneric species by relying on common names rather than the scientific names (Hayes et al., 2009a; 2012). Natural dispersal by floating downstream on the water current or during flooding (Martin et al., 2012) could result in expansion both within aquatic systems as well as (in the case of flooding) to other water bodies otherwise unconnected.

The range reported incorporates speculation and anecdotal accounts about P. canaliculata as well. Gulf of Mexico Science, 1(2):30-38, Martin CW, Valentine JF, 2014. 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. In: Molluscan Research, 3 (1) 1-5. by Barker G M]. 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 the same year (1810), a few months after Perry's publication, Montfort introduced the generic name Ampullarius as an unjustified emendation of Ampullaria. The golden apple snail situation in Cambodia. cleaning the aquarium walls rather than eating the aquarium plants), owners dispose of the snails in local waterways (Martin et al., 2012). Snails consumed less than 10 % of Spartina alterniflora, Thalia dealbata and Typha latifolia. (b) what clutches look like after they have approximately 2 days to fully dry and set.
