This species of snail has been spotted any where from the southern part of Canada to the Gulf States and west to eastern Nebraska and Oklahoma. However, the majority of the sightings though have been spotted in  Missouri and in the Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia border lands. Land snails prefer  areas that are moist and shady for example, under rocks, logs, and leaf piles. Shade and moisture are important to snails because drying out is their primary threat. Land snails seem to prefer habitat rich in calcium. One such habitat would include dogwood trees (McGlone, 2007).  The leaves and berries of this tree are higher in calcium content then other trees that can be found in a snail's habitat (McGlone, 2007).
