The transparent vitrine snail can typically be found in open meadows, grassy areas and along roadsides. It is most prominent in the northeastern part of the United States (as shown in the map below), but may also be found in parts of Canada and Western and Central Europe. In one study, they were found along Lake Michigan near the Door and Garden Peninsulas where researchers discovered that the snails were able to tolerate significant levels of human impact (Nekola, 2003). In a study at Glacier National Park, researchers found seventeen transparent vitrine snails among a total of nineteen species, and within 35% of the sites (Hendricks, 2009).
