The invasive snail Melanoides tuberculata in Argentina and Paraguay. For instance, Riech (1937) recorded M. tuberculata in the Pacific islands in 1937, but its absence is not certain before this date. It has since then invaded the whole inter-tropical area (Glaubrecht, 2000). In the Neotropical region, especially on some Caribbean islands, this snail has reduced populations of Biomphalaria glabrata, the main snail host of intestinal schistosomiasis. Modern species include Melanoides tuberculata, today widespread in Africa and Asia and Tarebia granifera, recently introduced via aquarist trade. (La faune et le peuplement de Polynésie française). Several trematode species infecting M. tuberculata have been found in some invaded countries such as Mexico (Amaya-Huerta and Almeyda-Artigas, 1994) and Colombia (Velasquez et al., 2000). > 0°C, dry winters), GISD/IASPMR: Invasive Alien Species Pathway Management Resource and DAISIE European Invasive Alien Species Gateway.

Melanoides tuberculata was originally described from India, and boasts a vast native range extending from Southeast Asia through the Mideast and much of Africa.
