Taxonomic Source(s): Bank, R.A. and Neubert, E. 2017. MolluscaBase. Checklist of the land and freshwater Gastropoda of Europe. Last update: July 16th, 2017.
Taxonomic Notes: This species can only be reliably identified by dissection, hence any new records from new regions need to be carefully validated, as other species of Succineidae look very similar.

The species was placed in the genus Catinella for many years, but as this is predominantly a genus found in Hawaii and Pacific regions, the subgenus Quickella was elevated to genus level.
