Re: Malaysian Trumpet Snail

Hi Tom,

There seems to be debate about the current name of MTS.  There also seems to
be two species, I don't know which one is really our MTS.
I've seen all the following names:

Melanoides tubercularia
Melanoides tuberculata (Muller, 1774)
Melanoides tuberculatus

Melanoides turricula
Thiara turricala

Here's some websites:

I'd suggest emailing some malacologists that work with thiarids...   they
could probably help you find some good resources.
