"Platydemus manokwari" has had several effects on the ecology of the communities that it has been introduced to. In the Pacific Islands that "P. manokwari" has invaded, several native land snails, specifically the "Partula", "Mandarina", juvenile "M. aureola", "B. similaris", "
kyotoense", and "Meghimatium bilineatum" have either gone extinct or their numbers have drastically reduced. "P. manokwari" is such an efficient and invasive species that it has caused the decline and extinction of gastropods in several islands and is known as one of the ‘100 world’s worst invaders’.
The landsnail fauna can be analyzed according to the elevational range of the species. There is a distinction between the windward (east) and leeward (west) side of the island, according to the parishes in which the localities are situated. While most species exhibit a rather wide elevational range, several are restricted in this respect. Very few species only occur at lower elevations: "Diplopoma", "
", "Beckianum" and "Huttonella" species. These taxa are largely introduced species. More interestingly, some species are restricted to higher localities: "Lucidella" sp., veronicellids (except the introduced "Veronicella cubensis" and "Veronicella sloanei"), "Naesiotus stenogyroides", "Amphibulima pardalina" and "Laevaricella perlucens". These do not occur, however, on the upper slopes of the higher peaks, but seem to be restricted to the hygrophytic vegetation zone, i.e. the cloud forest.
