Examples of "zonitoides"
"Zonitoides nitidus" is the type species of the genus "Zonitoides".
The native distribution of "Zonitoides arboreus" includes:
"Zonitoides excavatus" is smaller than "Zonitoides nitidus". The umbilicus is extremely wide and perspectivically open (as is the case in "Discus rotundatus"). The shell is weakly brown, slightly transparent, with radial streaks. The animal is dark.
Zonitoides is a genus of air-breathing land snails, terrestrial gastropod mollusks in the family Gastrodontidae.
The distribution of "Zonitoides" includes: North America, eastern and northern Asia, and Europe.
The species "Microphysula cookei" was originally described as "Zonitoides cookei" by Henry Augustus Pilsbry in 1922.
The distribution of "Zonitoides nitidus" includes the Holarctic zone. It is found almost all over Europe except the southernmost regions:
Zonitoides jaccetanicus is a species of small, air-breathing land snail, a terrestrial pulmonate gastropod mollusk in the family Gastrodontidae.
Zonitoides nitidus is a species of small, air-breathing land snail, a terrestrial pulmonate gastropod mollusk in the family Gastrodontidae.
Zonitoides arboreus is species of small air-breathing land snail, a terrestrial pulmonate gastropod mollusk in the family Gastrodontidae.
"Zonitoides nitidus" is herbivorous. These snails feed on disintegrating leaves, mushrooms, roots and fruit. They do not eat dry leaves. Humid leaves are preferred. When consuming soft food such as mushrooms or soft fruits, "Zonitoides nitidus" penetrates perpendicularly inside, producing characteristic holes; the entire animal including its shell can penetrate inside the fruit.
"Zonitoides arboreus" is common in woodlands and humid habitats, also in gardens. In Europe it is found in greenhouses, and is occasionally reported outside as an escape.
The shell is very much like that of "Zonitoides arboreus", but slightly larger. There are however anatomical differences between the two species.
Zonitoides excavatus is a European species of small, air-breathing land snail, a terrestrial pulmonate gastropod mollusk in the family Gastrodontidae.
"Zonitoides jaccetanicus" is endemic to Montserrat mountain near Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. It is a rare species, possibly endemic to Catalonia. The species has declined due to construction activities in the growing city of Barcelona.
These results and conclusions were confirmed by a similar study on slugs and snails. Cabbage leaves were sprayed with caffeine solutions and fed to "Veronicella cubensis" slugs and "Zonitoides arboreus" snails. Cabbage consumption reduced over time, followed by the death of the molluscs. Inhibition of feeding by caffeine was also observed for caterpillars.
"Zonitoides nitidus" occurs in wet meadows and river woods, usually near water bodies, swamps and swampy forests, in the zone of emergent vegetation. Man-made habitats such as pools in old quarries are sometimes colonized after a few years. In Switzerland it is found up to 2100m of altitude.
"Zonitoides excavatus" lives in leaf litter and under dead wood in old natural forests, sometimes also in swamps (western Ireland and western Great Britain). It lives only on non-calcareous soils. It tolerates some degree of human disturbance and replanting, but usually not in forest plantations.
Like many Sciomyzidae, species of this genus have larvae that are predators or parasitoids of snails. The larva of "P. albovaria", for example, eats land snails such as "Anguispira alternata" and "A. fergusoni", and then pupates in the empty shell. The "P. albocostata" larva eats up to five snails and then pupates in the ground litter next to the last empty shell. The larva of "P. inflexa" attacks the glass snail "Zonitoides arboreus".
