This map shows the distribution of Allogona profunda (Say) throughout the world. 


The snail Allogona profunda (Say) is normally found in a forest habitat. Walter C. Blinn also found that in the spring Allogona profunda (Say) moves in the direction of an expanse of fragmented log mold that was traversing the area (Blinn, 1963), which shows that log mold is an important aspect of this snail’s environment. Also in a more general sense, the family Polygyridae are believed to be primarily mycophagous, which means they eat fungi. This being the case, this causes snails in this family to be attracted to log mold where they may be able to find available food (Blinn, 1963).
Another source said that the snail Allogona profunda (Say) could be found under leaf litter on wooded floodplains, hillsides, and in ravines (Hubricht, 1985).
This particular snail is widely distributed throughout the United States and Canada. The distribution of Allogona profunda (Say) ranges across a wide section of central and eastern North America, from Kansas to Minnesota and east to New York, North Carolina, and Alabama. States that it has been found in include Alabama, Arkansas, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, Nebraska, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, Wisconsin, West Virginia, and the providence of Ontario (Nature Serve, 2010).

Allogona profunda (Say) is also like many other land snails in that it is nocturnal (Blinn, 1963).
