Common Name(s):
English Marsh Ramshorn, Marsh Rams-horn
Helisoma trivolvis (Say, 1816)
Taxonomic Source(s): Johnson, P.D., Bogan, A.E., Brown, K.M., Burkhead, N.M., Cordeiro, J.R., Garner, J.T., Hartfield, P.D., Lepitzki, D.A.W., Mackie, G.L., Pip, E., Tarpley, T.A., Tiemann, J.S., Whelan, N.V. and Strong, E.E. 2013.

Taxonomic Notes: Genetic examination of the molecular phylogeny of global Planorboidea at the COI and 18S molecular markers indicates that all North American taxa within the subfamily Planorbinae form a well-supported clade, as yet unnamed, but termed C-Clade (Albrecht et al. 2007).
