Vertigo tridentata, more commonly known as Honey Vertigo, is a small, terrestrial snail native to Wisconsin. It has a spiral shell with about five "whorls" when fully grown and on average the adult measures 2 millimeters long and 1 millimeter wide. Their shell has a slight shine or gloss to it and has an unmistakable honey-yellow to a tan or light brown coloration (Pilsbry, 1948). Vertigo tridentata spend their life on the ground or low to the ground on the base of trees and weeds in a sunny, yet moist and humid environment and are usually located close to a source of water such as a marsh or lake so they do not risk drying out (Harms, 2008).
