However, there was much greater variation in consumption tendencies for taro and water hyacinth, although none of the studies showed P. maculata having a strong preference for these resources. The most thorough description available for P. maculata is by Hayes et al. The only terrestrial predator that has been observed capturing and eating apple snails is raccoon (Procyon lotor) (Carter et al. The snails consumed duckweed in one piece but first attacked the roots and aerenchyma-filled bulbs of water hyacinth before consuming the leaves. by Joshi, R. C.\Sebastian, L. S.]. They all identified the snails as P. canaliculata and for the studies in Laos there is no evidence that this was in error, and in fact P. maculata has not been recorded from Laos. Although some specific preferences may exist when offered different suites of plants, P. maculata can be considered a generalist herbivore that feeds on diverse aquatic plants (see the section on Hosts/Species Affected). In general, Pomacea were not well liked as a food in Asia and markets did not develop (e.g. Hatchlings (~1 mm in width) then fall into the water and attempt to adhere to some type of substrate. They estimated the cost of application at $2.50/lb [$5.50/kg]. Along with many other snail species, P. maculata can serve as an intermediate host for the parasitic nematode, Angiostrongylus cantonensis (rat lungworm) (Cowie, 2013b; Kim et al., 2014). 45-57. Los Baños, Philippines: Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice), 155-167, Conner SL, Pomory CM, Darby PC, 2008. No study has adequately documented immediate hatchling growth rates although rapid growth has been observed in the first six weeks. (2007), and given the common name ‘island apple snail’ (‘ insularum’ in Latin means ‘of islands’) by various agencies. These egg clutches provide a warning sign of a reproducing population (Burks et al., 2010; Kyle et al., 2011). More information about modern web browsers can be found at http://browsehappy.com/. Can breathe air. Apple snail invasions and the slow road to control: ecological, economic, agricultural, and cultural perspectives in Hawaii. Hayes, K.A., R.H. Cowie, S.C. Thiengo, and E.E.

The identity, distribution, and impacts of non-native apple snails in the continental United States. (2007) possess COI haplotypes that are a close match to haplotypes from the Río Uruguay near Buenos Aires, indicating a probable origin in this region. A distinct yet small dark brown line extends vertically from the top to the mid-point of the operculum. beef) with cheaper alternatives might facilitate a resurgence of apple snails in aquaculture, especially in areas that have other non-traditional meat sources. One or more of the features that are needed to show you the maps functionality are not available in the web browser that you are using. (2008) found that P. maculata adults readily consumed P. maculata eggs. The shell coils dextrally – that is, when viewed with the apex uppermost the aperture is on the right side of the shell. For queries involving invertebrates, contact Amy Benson. 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. Applesnails are larger than most freshwater snails and can be separated from other freshwater species by their oval shell which has the umbilicus (the axially aligned, hollow, cone-shaped space within the whorls of a coiled mollusc shell) of the shell perforated or broadly open. 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. 2012). In: Global advances in ecology and management of golden apple snails [ed. Felipponea species are small, and unlikely to be encountered. Other species of Pomacea possess, in addition to an apical gland, both a medial and basal gland. It feeds on aquatic plants and can devastate rice (in South-east Asia), taro (in Hawaii; although P. maculata is not in Hawaii) and other aquatic or semi-aquatic crops. Biological Invasions. The snail could be incorporated into educational displays in aquariums that teach about wetland ecosystems and some school teachers may use the large shells for art projects. Without any requirement or practice of inspection, small P. maculata may be mistaken for P. diffusa and unintentionally sold to the public. Medium-sized and large prawns (10–30 g) efficiently preyed on snails up to 15mm in size, while small prawns (up to 4 g) effectively consumed snail hatchlings. Raising public awareness is not only important to prevent the further spread of Pomacea species in Asia and elsewhere (e.g. Barnes, M.A., R.K. Fordham, R.L. 100 of the world's worst invasive alien species: a selection from the global invasive species database. Newly laid clutches have a deeper pink colour and a noticeable gelatinous nature before they dry out and develop. Texas, Florida, South Carolina) have put P. maculata on a list of prohibited species.

These intentional introductions eventually gave way to accidental introductions as these aquaculture projects failed, the markets having been over-estimated. 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. Species of Lanistes, an African genus, appear to coil sinistrally, with the aperture to the left of the shell when viewed with the apex uppermost. Wada, 1997; Cheng and Kao, 2006; Preap, 2006; Wada, 2006; Yang et al., 2006; Yin et al., 2006), although in parts of southern China P. canaliculata became a popular delicacy, eaten raw (Cowie, 2013a; Yang et al., 2013), and is now widespread (Lv et al., 2011). In males the penis sheath is visible just behind the mantle edge above the right tentacle. There were some differences in consumption between congeneric plant species. 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. (2012), in which P. maculata and P. canaliculata are compared. A large freshwater snail, whose shell may reach the size of … Kyle et al. Very few educational efforts exist to prevent this common occurrence from happening again and again (Martin et al., 2012). Los Banos, Philippines: Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice), 243-254, Dillon RT, 2006. 2):83-86. http://www.hjmph.org/HJMPH_Jun13Suppl2.pdf, Yin YouPing, Jiang Hui, Guo DiJin, Wang ZhongKong, 2006. All of them were described originally in the genus Ampullaria, which is now considered a junior synonym of Pila (Cowie, 1997; ICZN, 1999), a genus of African and Asian Ampullariidae (Cowie, 2015). Journal of Molluscan Studies, 80(1):62-66. http://mollus.oxfordjournals.org/, Yusa Y, 2001. While some people might see this as an environmental service, apple snails such as P. maculata that feed relatively indiscriminately on a wide range of macrophytes will have negative impacts on native and desirable vegetation and the animals associated with them (Robins, 1971; Simberloff and Stiling 1996; Cowie, 2002). They suggested that introduced P. maculata populations continue to grow in the aquatic ecosystems of southeast Houston, and the same may be happening in the other parts of the southeastern USA to which P. maculata has been introduced (Byers et al., 2013). Pomacea maculata critical point-dried penial sheath, showing two glands on the dorsal surface. The shell has five or six whorls on average, increasing rapidly in size, with a deep suture between the whorls. Female and male snails copulate for several minutes, if not hours. The differences were attributed to the survivorship of hatchlings and young juvenile snails, as the peak in population followed the mating season. Pest risk analysis on the introduction of Pomacea insularum into the EU. Subsequent efforts were more successful and the use of snail traps facilitated the removal of four tons of P. maculata from the pond between April and July 2008. Novel animal defenses against predation: a snail neurotoxin combining lectin and pore-forming chains that resembles plant defense and bacteria attack toxins. However, no studies on how P. maculata might alter ecosystem processes, particularly nutrient cycling, have been conducted. Subsequent efforts were more successful and the use of snail traps facilitated the removal of four tons of, http://dx.org/10.1016/j.actao.2012. 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. Additional confusion has also arisen because some of these names have been used for more than one species of ampullariid; for instance, ‘golden snail’ and ‘mystery snail’ have been used primarily for orange/yellow varieties of both P. canaliculata and P. diffusa (the latter often misidentified as P. bridgesii), notably in the aquarium trade, in some cases without realizing that they are different species, or without being able to distinguish them, or simply misidentifying them (see Cowie et al., 2006). Alabama Malacological Research Center. Pomacea maculata; the increasing thickness of opercula as the snail increases in age and size. Similarly to other species, P. maculata showed intermediate preference for Bacopa caroliniana and N. odorata. Citation information: U.S. Geological Survey. She also assessed desiccation tolerance and oxygen consumption, in particular when subject to progressive hypoxia. Burks et al. (2008) measured consumption rates of six size classes of P. maculata when presented with seven submerged macrophytes simultaneously. 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.

Lethal and non-lethal effects of multiple indigenous predators on the invasive golden apple snail (Pomacea canaliculata). The operculum of P. maculata is also much thicker and more inflexible than that of P. canaliculata, creating a much less effective seal. Deposits pink eggs above the water line; eggs may be destroyed by scrapping them into the water. Color can range from pale to darker olive green often with a faint dark band.

The pet and aquarium trade present another source of both intentional and accidental introduction and this is probably the main if not only pathway of introduction of P. maculata to the USA (Karatayev et al., 2009; Martin et al., 2012). Buenos Aires is one the coldest areas in the native range of the species, with average temperatures of 4-6 °C in the coldest months. by Joshi, R. C. \Sebastia, L. S.]. The emergence of angiostrongyliasis in the People's Republic of China: the interplay between invasive snails, climate change and transmission dynamics. (2018) suggests that the development of all-male prawn populations of Macrobrachium rosenbergii has the potential as a biocontrol agent over hatchling and adult apple snails (Pomacea spp.). EFSA Journal, 10(1):2552. http://www.efsa.europa.eu/en/efsajournal/pub/2552.htm, Gaston EE, 2006. The list of references for all nonindigenous occurrences of Pomacea maculata are found here. September, 2011. Table 1. Japan, Korea, Vietnam and the Philippines), Matsukura et al. Potamopyrgus antipodarum. Pomacea maculata. Nonetheless, it seems that together, these two large-bodied freshwater snails have flourished in locations to which they have been introduced and become invasive because of their high fecundity, generalized feeding, wide abiotic tolerances and close associations with humans. The Nonindigenous Occurrences section of the NAS species profiles has a new structure. 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. The southernmost latitude at which it occurs appears to be near Buenos Aires, Argentina (Hayes et al., 2012; Byers et al., 2013). 100 of the world's worst invasive alien species: a selection from the global invasive species database.

The golden apple snail situation in Cambodia. 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. Zootaxa, 3940:1-92. http://www.mapress.com/zootaxa/2015/f/z03940p092f.pdf, Cowie RH, Hayes KA, 2012. EPPO, 2020. This species has been known to be a carrier of the rat lungworm parasite in New Orleans and Mandeville, Louisiana populations, but it is not widespread in the applesnail population (J. Teem, pers. VO2 increased with body size and temperature, but P. maculata, especially juveniles, was not found to be an especially good oxygen regulator under hypoxic conditions in comparison with other freshwater snail species, perhaps reflecting its association with lotic (flowing water) habitats.

Lack of mitochondrial DNA diversity in invasive apple snails (Ampullariidae) in Hawaii. Hayes et al. (c) after one week, the pink eggs in the clutches transition to gray. 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). The list of references for all nonindigenous occurrences of Pomacea paludosa are … They occur in both aquatic (marine and fresh-water) and terrestrial environment… When removing nuisance vegetation (e.g. Channeled apple snails (CAS) are large, freshwater snails that grow to over 3 inches in length. The colour of the eggs starts off as a vibrant pink and then fades to light pink, grey and then eventually white as the oxidative proteins break down and the clutches start to hatch. Wallingford, UK: CABI, CABI, Undated b. CABI Compendium: Status as determined by CABI editor. 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). A reference to P. maculata as 'giant Peruvian’ or ‘Inca' snails (Dillon, 2006) does not reflect the broad distribution of this species. Quite the appetite: juvenile island apple snails (Pomacea insularum) survive consuming only exotic invasive plants. In: A handbook of global freshwater invasive species [ed. Grana, F. Personal communication. by Joshi, R. C.\Sebastian, L. S.]. Hawai'i Journal of Medicine and Public Health, 72(6, supplement 2):6-9, Cowie RH, 2013. The only published example of biological control of P. maculata in the USA is in Langan Pond in Mobile, Alabama, where 14,000 native redear sunfish (Lepomis microlophus) were released to control P. maculata hatchlings (Martin et al,. Feeding rates of an introduced freshwater gastropod Pomacea insularum on native and nonindigenous aquatic plants in Florida. Pomacea maculata; numerous egg clutches laid on wild taro (Colocasia esculenta). For queries involving fish, please contact Matthew Neilson. I 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. 183. Snail Busters: Stop the invasive South American apple snails. Conner, L. Personal communication. Modelling the distribution of P. canaliculata in China under global warming scenarios indicates that this species could spread north into areas that it has not yet invaded (Lv et al., 2011). Armand Bayou Nature Center, Houston, Texas. In contrast, the bright pink egg clutches cannot be missed in the landscape. Specifically, P. maculata also quickly consumed S. latifolia after eliminating the Utricularia. They also noted rarely seeing juveniles despite high egg production. 2007) and Louisiana, and most likely where there is evidence of egg masses, often first noticed prior to adults. (2004a) found that apple snail herbivory contributed to a shift in alternative stable states of a lake from a clear to a turbid condition. Differences in population dynamics and potential impacts of a freshwater invader driven by temporal habitat stability. However, their study distinguished P. canaliculata and P. “insularus” (= maculata), although they got the identifications reversed, Ebro River, Catalonia; identification confirmed via DNA sequencing by (MMAMRM, 2011), Southernmost Alabama (i.e. 72 (6, Suppl. (2008), Introduced from elsewhere in east or South-East Asia. IUCN Red List. A.]. Size-dependent effects of an invasive herbivorous snail (Pomacea canaliculata) on macrophytes and periphyton in Asian wetlands. Egg clutches are laid on emergent aquatic vegetation (Kyle et al., 2011) or on other hard surfaces above the water line, such as rocks, logs and various structures such as bridge supports, docks or quays, retaining walls, culverts, etc.). By all field accounts, little damage occurs to the egg clutches. The role of the proteinase inhibitor ovorubin in apple snail eggs resembles plant embryo defense against predation. Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology. In an experiment testing the effects of density on Pomacea paludosa juveniles, Conner et al. Origin Pomacea maculata is a species of large, globular, freshwater snail native to tropical and sub-tropical South America. Scientific Name: Pomacea maculata Common Name: Island Apple Snail. (2009) discussed the increasing proportion of juveniles observed in their study from 2006 to 2008. The Biologist, 53:136-152, Roll U, Dayan T, Simberloff D, Meinis HK, 2008. Underwood, E.B., T.L. Munoz, Nueva Ecija, Philippines: Philippine Rice Research Institute, 588 pp, Karatayev AY, Burlakova LE, Karatayev VA, Padilla DK, 2009. This aspect of their biology warrants further study, especially in comparison with P. canaliculata, as it may be important in the ability of P. maculata to invade agricultural wetlands. Species identification from archived snail shells via genetic analysis: a method for DNA extraction from empty shells. However, no studies have examined the survivorship or viability of any possible hybrids between the two species. Biology and management of invasive apple snails. The number of eggs in a clutch is greater in P. maculata but the eggs are smaller; hence hatchlings of P. canaliculata are roughly twice as big as those of P. maculata (Hayes et al., 2012). The ranges of both these species overlap with that of P. maculata and they are probably significant predators of this species. Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Georgia) should be encouraged to adopt similar measures. BMC Evolutionary Biology, 7(97):(26 June 2007). The aquaculture industry first transported apple snails, both P. maculata and P. canaliculata, from South America to Asia as potential human food sources (Mochida, 1991; Naylor, 1996). Fertilization occurs internally, followed by oviparous development. 10, Cowie RH, 1997. 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). Ramakrishnan (2007) assessed desiccation tolerance of three size classes of P. maculata at relative humidities (RH) from <5% to >95% and temperatures of 20, 25 and 30°C. Hydrobiologia [Structure and Function of World Shallow Lakes. Species identification from archived snail shells via genetic analysis: a method for DNA extraction from empty shells. Names and dates are hyperlinked to their relevant specimen records. The name Pomacea insularum(anglicized in the USA as the “island applesnail”) was formerly used as the valid name of P. maculatabut is now a junior objective synonym of P. maculata, following the designation of a single specimen as both the neotype of P. maculataand lectotype of P. insularum; the same specimen was also designated as the neotype of P. gigas, thereby making this also a junior objective … 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. Shelton, D. Personal communication. Nonetheless, the global need to replace expensive sources of protein (e.g. Byers J E, McDowell W G, Dodd S R, Haynie R S, Pintor L M, Wilde S B, 2013.

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. P. maculata occurs in shallow parts of slow-moving bodies of fresh water, close to riverbanks, at the edges of lakes and in ponds, in wetlands and irrigated wetland croplands and in drainage/irrigation ditches. P. maculata probably accounts for some proportion of the total amount; however, it remains difficult to determine whether or not past studies were based on P. maculata, P. canaliculata or a mixture of the two species. Clutches should be physically destroyed by crushing. Climate and pH predict the potential range of the invasive apple snail (Pomacea insularum) in the southeastern United States. Similarly, small watercraft (e.g. Apple snails (Ampullariidae) as agricultural pests: their biology, impacts and management. 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)”.

The lip of the shell prominently displays the characteristic orange color that helps distinguish this species. Pesticides should always be used in a lawful manner, consistent with the product's label. Molluscan Research, 24:139-148, Thiengo SC, Simões Rde O, Fernandez MA, Maldonado Júnior A, 2013. In general, the former is the primary risk in Asia and the latter in other regions, though by no means exclusively. Pomacea maculata Perry, 1810 . 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. [2020]. (2011) found no clear relationship between female size and clutch size. We are working to provide illustrated descriptions, ecological information, distribution, habitat, history, reproduction, management approaches, and other useful information about the species listed. Predators of the introduced apple snail, Pomacea canaliculata (Gastropoda: Ampullariidae): their effectiveness and utilization in biological control. 2007. However, there is a risk of further spread of the snails, and consequent negative impacts, associated with such efforts. Furthermore, few studies have investigated the indirect impacts of the pesticide on ecosystems. P. diffusa is the most common ampullariid in the aquarium pet trade (Perera and Walls, 1996). 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. Reproduced from Hayes et al. Golden apple snail. 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.
