The lack of information available on the species Stagnicola woodruffi  requires more focus to be put on the characteristics of its Family- Lymnaeidae.

Lymnaeidaes are hermaphrodites who typically self-fertilize, however they will exchange sperm with other individuals when possible. They lay eggs in long masses from which embryos complete their larval stages within and eventually emerge as tiny shelled snails. Temperature can have an effect on the rate of their growth, having warmer temperatures allow for faster development and colder temperatures causing a longer growth process (several years). Typically most species mature and reproduce in 9-15 months when temperatures are optimal (
