1016 Desmoulin`s whorl snail  Vertigo moulinsiana
A sizeable population of Desmoulinís whorl snail Vertigo moulinsiana lives beside ditches within pasture on the floodplain of the River Stour, where reed sweet-grass Glyceria maxima, large sedges Carex spp. and sometimes common reed Phragmites australis dominate the vegetation. Stodmarsh is a south-eastern outlier of the main swathe of sites and is important in confirming the role of underlying base-rich rock (chalk) as a factor determining this speciesí distribution.
