P. maculata can impact many plant species. Results from analysis of the nuclear marker EF1-α are more enigmatic, with a few individuals identified as one or the other species on the basis of COI having EF1-α 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). No species-specific pesticide exists for P. maculata and traditional molluscides may fail because of the ability of the snails to close the operculum for long periods of time. Authority: Perry. Japan, Korea, Vietnam and the Philippines), Matsukura et al. Terminal (leaf) node. it is a human commensal), Highly likely to be transported internationally accidentally, Highly likely to be transported internationally deliberately, Highly likely to be transported internationally illegally, Difficult to identify/detect as a commodity contaminant, Difficult to identify/detect in the field, Meat/fat/offal/blood/bone (whole, cut, fresh, frozen, canned, cured, processed or smoked). The majority of invasive populations in Asia appear to be P. canaliculata, often not mixed with P. maculata (Hayes et al., 2008; Tran et al., 2008) and the pest potential of P. canaliculata in such cases is clear. Pomacea canaliculata lamarck 1822 taxonomy phylogenetic. Further research especially on its genetics, reproductive biology and physiological tolerances are required. The operculum (the trap-door like structure attached to the upper part of the animal’s foot and used to close the shell aperture when the animal withdraws into the shell) is dark brown; it is horny (corneous) in texture and somewhat flexible, and is uniformly concave in females, but concave at the centre and becoming convex toward the margins in males. (2004a), apple snails consumed water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) at a rate of 1.01 g plant per g snail per day. Individual egg diameter is ~1.9 mm. Several sources list P. maculata as a pest species. Widespread. Another invasive apple snail, Marisa cornuarietis, has been suggested as a biocontrol agent for invasive weeds. Teem et al. Non indigenous land and freshwater gastropods in Israel. Given their dark colouration, adult P. maculata may blend into their benthic sediments and be difficult to see. Although low in comparison to ephemeral systems, higher snail densities occurred around the macrophyte-dominated zone versus the open water zone.

Los Banos, Philippines: Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice), 243-254, Dillon RT, 2006. Feeding rates of an introduced freshwater gastropod Pomacea insularum on native and nonindigenous aquatic plants in Florida. In a study of P. canaliculata (the identification is probably correct), Laos Carlsson et al. Pomacea canaliculata(Lamarck, 1822) P. glauca(Linnaeus, 1758) P. insularum(d'Orbigny, 1835) P. lineata(Spix, 1827) P. haustrum(Reeve, 1856) P. diffusa(Blume, 1957) (2012) described a case study of repeated copper sulfate application to Langan Pond and Three Mile Creek in Mobile, Alabama. However, there is a risk of further spread of the snails, and consequent negative impacts, associated with such efforts. Current Zoology, 57(5):630-641. http://www.actazool.org/temp/%7B15CDF573-6C68-4CC7-AA14-2C9662E4C898%7D.pdf, Kyle CH, Trawick MK, McDonough JP, Burks RL, 2009. Nonetheless, P. maculata can be distinguished from P. canaliculata somewhat reliably as adults based on features of the shell, that of P. maculata usually having a yellowish to reddish-orange wash round the pallial region of the peristome (the edge of the shell aperture), with that of P. canaliculata being unpigmented, and more subtly in the greater angulation of the whorl shoulder in P. maculata (Hayes et al., 2012). Cowie RH, 1995. The mobile application is available from the Google Play Store and Apple iTunes. Misidentification could then lead to customers buying a macrophyte-eating snail (P. maculata) instead of an algae-feeding snail (P. diffusa) and then, when the snail does not perform the desired function (i.e. 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. P. maculata (and P. canaliculata) seem particularly voracious and generalist compared to other Pomacea species (Morrison and Hay, 2011). by Joshi, R. C.\Sebastian, L. S.]. Effect of temperature and feeding preference on submerged plants by the island apple snail, Pomacea insularum (d'Orbigny, 1839) (Ampullariidea). Eggs are laid noticeably above the water line, from a few centimetres but generally higher and up to ~2 metres. A global phylogeny of apple snails: Gondwanan origin, generic relationships, and the influence of outgroup choice (Caenogastropoda: Ampullariidae). Much of the following information is additional information specific to the USA and to P. maculata. For instance, a ban on the outdoor use of metaldehyde will be introduced in the UK from Spring 2020. 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,). Biological Invasions, 1(1):21-32, Simberloff D, Stiling P, 1996. 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). 2):23-25. http://www.hjmph.org/HJMPH_Jun13Suppl2.pdf, Yeung NW, Hayes KA, Cowie RH, 2013. of coldest month > 0°C and < 18°C, mean warmest month > 10°C, Cf - Warm temperate climate, wet all year, Warm average temp.

The Invasive Species Compendium datasheet for P. canaliculata should be accessed for much information regarding prevention and control related to P. canaliculata, as the same information is mostly pertinent also to P. maculata. 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. Apple snails (Ampullariidae) as agricultural pests: their biology, impacts and management. Out of South America: multiple origins of non-native apple snails in Asia. Pomacea canaliculata, commonly known as the golden apple snail or the channeled apple snail, is a species of large freshwater snail with gills and an operculum, an aquatic gastropod mollusc in the family Ampullariidae, the apple snails.South American in origin, this species is considered to be in the top 100 of the "World's Worst Invasive Alien Species". The operculum of P. maculata is also much thicker and more inflexible than that of P. canaliculata, creating a much less effective seal. 2012 : 730 ): NHMUK 1854.12. 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). Los Baños, Philippines: Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice), 3-23, Cuong DC, 2006. Pomacea diffusa , common name the spike-topped apple snail , is a species of freshwater snail, an aquatic gastropod mollusk in the family Ampullariidae, the apple snails. Present in south-western Japan and the Ryukyu Islands, Introduced from elsewhere in east or South-East Asia. The entire genome of P. maculata has not been sequenced or examined comprehensively. The larvae enter the person’s bloodstream and eventually end up in the brain, where after moving around for some time, they die. They tend to have more prominent shell spires, though this character is variable in all three species, and the sutures between their whorls are not deeply channellized. P. canaliculata is now known to have a more restricted southern distribution and P. maculata an extensive distribution overlapping in part with that of P. canaliculata but extending as far as Amazonia (Hayes et al., 2012). Most of the literature on management of apple snail pests undoubtedly refers to P. canaliculata, which is the most widespread introduced species of Pomacea in Asia. http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0015059, Dyke Jvan, Ingram L, 2013. http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0056812 DOI:10.1371/journal.pone.0056812, CABI, Undated. Similarly, small watercraft (e.g. maculata. 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. Note the 'operculum' closing the opening of the shell. Report on a visit to Cambodia to advise on apple snails as potential rice pests. However, it has been extremely confused because of the gross morphological similarity within major ampullariid groups accompanied by considerable intra-specific variation. Red List of Threatened Species. (2008) described the reproductive behaviour and fecundity of P. maculata (referred to as P. insularum). However, given its success as an invasive alien species it is not surprising that the majority of clutches display high hatching success, often 70% or more (Barnes et al., 2008). attempt to adhere to some type of substrate. (2012). Although usually confined initially to aquaculture facilities, the snails either escape or are deliberately released into agricultural or natural wetlands. Angiostrongylus cantonensis and rat lungworm disease in Brazil. Introduction, distribution, spread, and impacts of exotic freshwater gastropods in Texas. They may also use leftover egg material as an initial resource. Texas, USA: University of Texas at Arlington, 245 pp. In: The mollusks: a guide to their study, collection, and preservation [ed. Other scientific names. Andre KB, Lopez MA, 2013. Apple snails, though not P. maculata specifically, have been suggested for control of weeds in wetland rice (e.g. Common names. The Department of Natural Resources in South Carolina also used copper sulfate to kill snails in a small pond. Color can range from pale to darker olive green often with a faint dark band. Molluscs are a very diverse group, with at least 85,000 species named, and estimates of up to 200,000 species occurring worldwide. Active, short term dispersal does not necessarily translate into long term, long distance dispersal. Ants in tropical irrigated rice: distribution and abundance, especially of Solenopsis geminata (Hymenoptera: Formicidae). (2009), Baker et al. No details of economic impacts exist for P. maculata because of past confusion between it and P. canaliculata. Ampullaria castelnaudii Hupé, 1857. 1984 was the first record of Pomacea but this record could have been either P. maculata or P. canaliculata, Introduced from elsewhere in east or South-East Asia. In places to which they have been introduced, empty shells may occur along the margins of invaded habitat. It can be distinguished from P. maculata by its more square-shouldered whorls, as indicated above, and the fact that the suture (the junction between successive whorls) is not deeply channelled. ], 646:243-251. http://springerlink.metapress.com/content/1573-5117/, Burlakova LE, Karatayev AY, Padilla DK, Cartwright LD, Hollas DN, 2009. It is commonly confused with any number of similar large apple snails, including the well-known invasive golden apple snail Pomacea canaliculata (listed among ‘100 of the world’s worst invasive species’). Fecundity of the exotic apple snail, Pomacea insularum. Rice seedlings are cut just above the soil surface, and the stems and leaves are eaten. The number of eggs laid per clutch is substantially higher in P. maculata (average ~1500) than in P. canaliculata (average <300) and the individual eggs are much smaller (Hayes et al., 2012). http://snailbusters.wordpress.com/, EFSA Panel on Plant Health, 2012. In: Global advances in ecology and management of golden apple snails [ed. P. maculata may spread naturally in the same ways as are thought to be the case for P. canaliculata, that is predominantly by floating downstream, although crawling upstream is also possible, unless the flow rate is too great (Ranamukhaarachchi and Wikramasinghe, 2006). From a shell height of ~10 mm, the snails reach ~20 mm over 6 weeks and achieve ~28 mm after a further 6 weeks. They are laid in densely packed clutches above water on emergent vegetation and other firm substrates (e.g. Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology. The donut-shaped black plastic trap sits on top of the sediment, held in place by a PVC pipe. Spread of freshwater Pomacea snails (Pilidae, Mollusca) from Argentina to Asia. When several references are cited, they may give conflicting information on the status. In the study of Carlsson et al. The removal of P. maculata allowed for the persistence of important aquatic vegetation. In contrast to studies in South-East Asia, recent studies in North America in areas where no P. canaliculata are present, can generally be reliably interpreted as being based on P. maculata. 1-12. http://dx.org/10.1016/j.actao DOI:10.1016/j.actao.2012. Hayes K A, Joshi R C, Thiengo S C, Cowie R H, 2008. However, mixed and possibly hybridizing populations have now been detected, e.g. (2013) provided a model that predicted suitable habitat for P. maculata in the USA, based on climate modelling and the influence of pH. American Malacological Bulletin, 20:147-159, Burks RL, Hensley SA, Kyle CH, 2011. 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. Compendium record. Hand collect snails and eggs in small plantings. Species of Asolene are generally small < 2 cm shell height) and usually yellow with brown bands. Adult and juvenile P. maculata both consume aquatic macrophytes. 2012). bridge pilings, rocks). Both species have been introduced to South-East and East Asia, although for many years they were not distinguished and the Asian introductions were widely identified as “golden apple snails” and the name P. canaliculata was applied to them. In Thailand, high losses of aquatic vegetation from snail grazing resulted in phosphorus release and concomitant outbreaks of phytoplankton. Houston, Texas, USA. Hydrobiologia [Structure and Function of World Shallow Lakes. Plos One, 8(5):10.1371/journal.pone.0063782, Dreon MS, Ituarte S, Heras H, 2010. http://dspace.uta.edu/handle/10106/131, Ranamukhaarachchi SL, Wickramasinghe S, 2006. The snails have gills and a lung. Furthermore, research to measure the proportion of snails infected by Angiostongylus or other parasites and assess the risk to human health is needed. In: Global advances in ecology and management of golden apple snails [ed. What's New? Pomacea diffusa, common name the spike-topped apple snail, Large aquatic snail, Ross river area, Townsville, QLD, Australia USA, Florida, Gainesville. 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. However, the algae-eating ‘spike-topped’ apple snail, Pomacea diffusa (formerly identified as the different species Pomacea bridgesii) is not perceived as a threat to agriculture and so P. diffusa remains freely available in the aquarium trade. During desiccation, water loss was greater at higher RH values and higher temperatures, and smaller snails lost proportionately more water than larger snails. Educational efforts should advise small children not to play with snails. In the past, this species has been misidentified as P. bridgesii, which is generally larger. Individual growth rates vary widely. Snails were exposed to ph in the range of 2 to 12.5 for a period of 28 days. Tentacles are long and tapering. The two species are readily differentiated by DNA sequences (Rawlings et al., 2007; Matsukura et al., 2008; Hayes et al., 2008, 2009a, 2012). Some of them have been used in combination with the genus name Pomacea, and so these are also listed in the Identity section. The differences were attributed to the survivorship of hatchlings and young juvenile snails, as the peak in population followed the mating season. However, in one laboratory study, Horn et al. These intentional introductions eventually gave way to accidental introductions as these aquaculture projects failed, the markets having been over-estimated. Photo 3 Florida Division of Plant Industry , Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Bugwood.org. The snails consumed duckweed in one piece but first attacked the roots and aerenchyma-filled bulbs of water hyacinth before consuming the leaves. The most readily apparent anatomical differences are in the male penis sheath (Hayes et al., 2012). Although a useful control method for an early detected, small invasion of P. maculata, hand removal of adults is time consuming and some snails can still go undetected making the control treatment ineffective (Martin et al., 2012). 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). This may have indirectly contributed to the spread of P. maculata. (2006), Rawlings et al. Old species and new concepts in the taxonomy of Pomacea (Gastropoda: Ampullariidae). Canaliculatais a reduced plant stand where the snails have severed the plant stalks below the water level. The albino variant is the most common in shops, and should have yellow-white flesh with orange spots and a golden yellow shell. P. canaliculata and P. maculata. Golden apple snail: its occurrence and importance in Suriname's rice ecosystem. Pomacea maculata; laying a clutch of eggs in the early morning. 45-57. In an experiment in which juvenile P. maculata received three resources simultaneously (Burks et al., 2011) they consumed more M. spicatum than C. esculenta and E. crassipes. In the USA, P. maculata has been recorded from Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, possibly North Carolina, South Carolina and Texas. Ampullaria haustrum Reeve, 1856. 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 number of eggs per clutch ranges from a few hundred to as many as ~4500, with an average of ~1500 (Barnes et al., 2008; Burks et al., 2010). A few studies have been done in Asia on the use of fish to control P. canaliculata (see the Invasive Species Compendium datasheet for P. canaliculata). Golden apple snail, Pomacea species (Thailand). (b) what clutches look like after they have approximately 2 days to fully dry and set. This appears to be the only broad study of the physiology of P. maculata. PLoS ONE, No.March:e17227. 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. The emergence of angiostrongyliasis in the People's Republic of China: the interplay between invasive snails, climate change and transmission dynamics. Apple snails. beef) with cheaper alternatives might facilitate a resurgence of apple snails in aquaculture, especially in areas that have other non-traditional meat sources. Hatchlings are likely to rely on detritus and algal-based resources for food, although they also readily consume lettuce in the laboratory. 4.313 . Naylor, 1996; Teo, 2004). However, experimental evidence (Ramakrishnan, 2007) indicates that P. maculata can survive long periods (i.e. The majority of references identify Argentina as the original source of the introduced Pomacea (e.g. The most common apple snail in aquarium shops is Pomacea bridgesii, also called Pomacea diffusa, (the spike-topped apple snail). Pathways for transmission of angiostrongyliasis and the risk of disease associated with them. This fact sheet is a part of the app Pacific Pests and Pathogens. The former has probably been the main source of the invasion of P. maculata in Asia, while its presence in the continental USA is probably attributable to the latter. Washington, USA: Island Press, 101-108, Way MJ, Islam Z, Heong KL, Joshi RC, 1998. In an experiment testing the effects of density on Pomacea paludosa juveniles, Conner et al. Applesnails, Pomacea maculata, cluster of pink snail eggs on branch, swampy area of Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park. 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). Los Baños, Philippines: Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice), 345-361. For most countries in which Hayes et al. Island apple snail .

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). 8 (2), e56812. Burlakova et al. Risks of species introduced for biological control. Pomacea maculata is a species of large freshwater snail with an operculum, an aquatic gastropod mollusk in the family Ampullariidae, the apple snails. plants and wood) in preference to artificial substrates (Kyle et al., 2011). Data source for updated system data added to species habitat list. P. maculata may impact biodiversity through a number of different mechanisms including competition with native species and as a predator of native invertebrates, as studies have reported for P. canaliculata (see CABI Invasive Species Compendium datasheet for P. canaliculata). Pomacea maculata; aperture view of large shell that has been cleaned and briefly bleached. Ecology of the introduced appel snail, Marisa cornuarietis (Ampullariidae) in Dade County, Florida. PLoS ONE, No.December:e15059. Possibly previously confused with P. canaliculata, which is also in South Korea, Introduced from elsewhere in east or South-East Asia. (Note scale). There are molecular method to separate some species. The name has been given to several Pomacea species, due to confused identification. 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).
