A Key to the British Fresh-and Brackish-Water Gastropods: With Notes on Their Ecology Unknown Binding – 1 Jan. by Thomas Townley Macan (Author)Author: Thomas Townley Macan. The Conchsoc does have an online key for identifying British and Irish freshwater and brackish-water snails (this doesn't include bivalves). The names will be woefully out of date, but T.T.

KEY A: quick key to the commoner species of pond snails. 1Shell flat-coiled, like a Catherine-wheel or a slice of Swiss roll 2. Shell with a turret or spire, either tall or globular 2Shell tiny, with a chalky or horny lid (poke mouth of shell gently with a bristle or grass stalk - feels hard). About this book. Language: English. This is the first identification key for the freshwater gastropods of the Western Palearctic, reviewing the progress of malacological research of the last few decades. This key is designed for use on preserved material and includes all the species known to occur in BC. When in doubt about a field identification, you should preserve a sample and try running the specimen through this key. If still in doubt, send the specimen to the Fish Museum, Department of Zoology, University Boulevard, University of British. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Macan, T.T. (Thomas Townley).
