Shell in adults 18-22 mm in height, 48-56 mm in diameter, more-or-less glossy but with growth lines (transverse striate) that are most prominent near the aperture. The effects on macrophyte community structure can, however, be expected to be density dependent (Jobin, 1970; Jobin et al., 1973; Nguma et al., 1982; Frandsen 1987; Pointier et al., 1991; Pointier, 1999; Pointier and David, 2004).

In addition, M. cornuarietis can migrate upstream against a moderate current (Ferguson and Palmer, 1958). M. cornuarietis is sold in the aquarium trade and therefore has an economic impact but the value of this is unknown.

M.cornuarietis superficially resembles Planorbarius corneus because of the planispiral coiling of the shell. Hunt (1961) demonstrated that. Madsen (1990) concluded that “although there is evidence that some snail species may effectively compete with schistosome vector species under certain circumstances, there are limitations to their use, since their habitat preferences may only partially overlap with those of the intermediate hosts.” The use of M. cornuarietis for biocontrol has not been fully established and is no longer encouraged.

The Nonindigenous Occurrences section of the NAS species profiles has a new structure. cornuarietis also predates on some other aquatic invertebrates (worms, microcrustaceans) and readily consumes carrion such as dead fish (Demian and Lutfy, 1966; Demian and Kamel, 1973; Cazzaniga and Estebenet, 1984; Hofkin et al., 1991; Stryker et al., 1991).

The reduction in submerged aquatic macrophytes was considered a factor in reducing population densities of pulmonate snails that are depend on macrophytes for food, cover and oviposition sites.

M. cornuarietis belongs to the family Ampullariidae, commonly known as the apple snails. This diet, coupled with their large body mass, high reproductive output and often high densities mean these snails can effect rapid changes in macrophyte community structure, with consequent perturbations of nutrient balance, turbidity and trophic structure of water bodies.

M. cornuarietis was introduced into some areas for control of pulmonate snails (principally in families Planorbidae, Physidae and Lymnaeidae) that function as intermediate hosts of trematode parasites affecting humans and/or their livestock (Demian and Luffy, 1964; Msangi and Kihauli, 1972; Jobin et al., 1973; Nguma et al., 1982; Pointier et al., 1991; Pointier, 1999; Pointier and David, 2004; Pointier and Jourdane, 2000).

Control of the Schistosoma mansoni and S. haematobium intermediate hosts in ricefields. M. cornuarietis is primarily a herbivore, feeding on macrophytes. This variation has raised the possibility of cryptic species within what has been commonly considered M. cornuarietis (OECD 2010) or that the reproductive cycle is conditional on the environmental setting. Marisa cornuarietis is also known to prey or compete with numerous African intermediate snail hosts for schistosomes: Biomphalaria alexandrina (Demian and Lutfy 1965), Biomphalaria pfeifferi, Lymnaea natalensis, and Bulinus tropicus (Nguma et al.
