Fun Facts

  •  Has a IUCN status of “DD,” meaning there is insufficient information to determine the extinction risk of this species.

  •     No other land snail in the Larue-Pine Hills region has a shell like the carinate pillsnail, so it can be easily identified by its shell alone.

  •  Euchemotrema hubrichti is known by two other names. E. hubrichti has a common name the carinate pillsnail and also the original name Pilsbry gave it, Stenotrema hubrichti (Anderson and Smith, 2005).

  • This Species was originally thought to be extinct, only shells of the snails were ever found. This all changed in 1943 when Pilsbry found the first live specimen (Anderson and Smith, 2005).

  • This was the first carinate member of the group Stenotrema monodon to be discovered and was considered to be a "special find" by Pilsbry (Anderson and Smith, 2005).

  • If you want to find E. hubrichti in the national park where they are located would be on the underside of the limestone slabs, in shaded moist areas, and usually growing around the area there will be Eastern red cedars (Cowie, 2006).    

  • The shell color on E. hubrichti can vary. shells are found to be a light brown to a brown red shade and even amber in color (Cowie, 2006).   

  • The jaws of E. hubrichti are also amber in color and fairly lucid (Cowie, 2006).
