Cytological studies of Melaniidae (Mollusca) with special reference to parthenogenesis and polyploidy. It was described in the eighteenth century by Müller (1774) from the Coromandel region, India. Since its first description, many new species names have been given, as a consequence of substantial morphological variability, and subsequently synonymized with M. tuberculata (Starmühlner, 1976b). The aperture is oval-shaped and the operculum is paucispiral, with the nucleus near the base (Morrison, 1954; Thompson, 1984). Reproduction is mainly by parthenogenesis (Jacob, 1957) but sexual reproduction does occur, with a resulting increase in genetic variance and/or heterosis effect (Facon et al., 2005). There is no evidence concerning introduction vectors but aquarium releases is the most probable vector. 318-322.

The consequences of the invasion of the Neotropical area, especially in some Caribbean islands, may be considered as a benefit for public health, because this snail has eliminated or strongly reduced populations of Biomphalaria glabrata, the main snail host of intestinal schistosomiasis (Pointier and Théron, 2006).

Melanoides tuberculata was found to be intermediate host for a number of trematode parasites (e.g. Family-Thiardae. However, the shell of M. tuberculata exhibits an amazing morphological variation (general shape, background colour, ornaments and sculptures) that can simply be revealed by bleaching shells and which allows defining discrete morphs (several dozen described morphs), (Pointier, 1989; Facon et al., 2003).
