Gastrocopta holzingeri is a hermaphroditic organism. This allows them to reproduce asexually. This is beneficial to the snail considering how hard it is for two snails to randomly run into each other. During the months of May and June, the snail lay their eggs (Baker, 1939). As you can imagine, since the adults are so small, so are the eggs! Most snails in the class Gastropda lay anywhere from a few to over 40 eggs (Baker, 1939). The snails are very selective of where they place the eggs. They usually leave them hidden under logs, chips, leaves, pieces of peeled bark, and woody debris (Baker, 1939). Snails go through so much trouble to hide the eggs because they are so fragile. Not only are they very small, they are also damaged by the harmful UV rays of the sun (Baker, 1939.) After twenty to thirty days, the baby snails emerge from their eggs. It will take the new snails two full years to reach maturity (Baker, 1939).
