The consequences of the invasion of the Neotropical area, especially in some Caribbean islands, may be considered as a benefit for public health, because this snail has eliminated or strongly reduced populations of Biomphalaria glabrata, the main snail host of intestinal schistosomiasis (Pointier and Théron, 2006). 2 cm (1") Longevity.
