New Zealand Mudsnail Conference

The introduction of the "New Zealand mud snail" (Potamopyrgus antipodarium) into steams of the American West has been attended by a blossoming of interest in what was already perhaps the best-known freshwater prosobranch. Our colleagues in Montana deserve special commendation for their remarkable research efforts in this regard.

Below is an announcement for the 4th (yes, fourth!) NZMS Conference, scheduled for Bozeman in mid-August. There's still time to submit an abstract, but hurry! Contact Dave Richards directly for more details.

And follow some of those links from the conference web site given below if you want to be impressed at the state of our knowledge on Potamopyrgus!
