Bigger and in Boulder

The New Zealand mud snail (Potamopyrgus antipodarum) has made an appearance in Boulder, Colorado, according to this new entry in the NAS Database. This is the first record of the invasive snail in that state, but perhaps it was inevitable, as the species is now found all over the Pacific Northwest. You may also want to check out this recent article from the Bozeman Daily Chronicle in Montana, about NZMS populations in Yellowstone.
