Daeadlochila uvulifera, have a true nucleus which makes them a eukaryotic organism.  They are part of the Kingdom: Animalia, characteristics of this kingdom are that the animals are multicellular.  In the Phylum: Mollusca, mollusks are soft bodied coelomates.  They have a mantle which secretes calcium carbonate which forms the shell, a muscular foot for locomotion, and a radula for feeding.  From there, Daedalochila uvulifera belong to the class of gastropoda.  This is a very diverse class containing, snails, slugs, limpets, conches, sea butterflies, and sea hares.  They are bilaterally symmetrical but with a feature called torsion, that makes them asymmetrical (Solem, 1978).  What classifies Daedalochila uvulifera under the Order: Stylommatophora, is that it has two pairs of retractile tentacles (Solem, 1978).  Daedalochila uvulifera is an air breathing terrestrial snail, which is what classifies it under the Family: Polygyridae.  The peninsula liptooth is classified under the Genus: Daedalochila, because of its narrow opening to enter the shell (Pilsbry [2], 1939).
