(Dunker, 1848), a planorbid snail native to
South and East Asia and living in small water bodies, has been found in
two greenhouses, the first time in the Czech Republic. Its occurrence in
other greenhouses in the Czech Republic is possible. Survival of this
snail in nature is considered unlikely, but it might be possible in
artificially heated environments.
