From other sources
Alien species The natural area of distribution of the New-Zealand mudsnail Potamopyrgus antipodarum is situated around New-Zealand, but around 1859 the species was introduced to Europe with barrels of drinking water. The little snails must have entered these barrels while they were beeing washed or refilled. In 1927 the first Belgian specimens of the snails were found in the river Scheldt around Antwerp. In Belgium the species inhabits fresh- to slightly brackish waters. This species can reproduce very fast, though parthenogenesis. These snails prey on young oysters, and are therefore not very popular among oyster farmers. [details]
