Gyraulus parvus Say, Helisoma campanulatum Say, Littorina littorea L., Littorina saxatilis Olivi, Lymnaea emarginata Say, Lymnaea palustris Muller, Lymnaea sp., Mya arenaria L., Mytilus edulis L., Paludestrina minuta Totten, Physa sayi Toppan, Physa sp., Polinices heros Say, Sphaerium securis Prime, and Succinea avara Say. From fresh water collections Lymnaea palustris Muller was the predominant species followed by Physa sayi Toppan and Sphaerium securis Prime.
