To our knowledge, Tennessee only has four reported introduced species of terrestrial gastropods (Cepaea nemoralis, Oxychilus cellarius, Opeas pyrgula, Limax maximus; www.explorer.natureserve.org; Dundee, 1974) so the existence of a fifth introduced species would be significant.

GODAN (1983) recorded two species of slugs as grapevines pests: Deroceras reticulatum (Muller, 1774) and Deroceras agreste (Linnaeus, 1758) (Agriolimacidae) and four species of snails: Cepaea hortensis (Muller, 1774), Cepaea memoralis (Linnaeus, 1758), Helix aspersa (Muller, 1774) (= Cornu aspersum) and Helix pomatia (Linnaeus, 1758) (Helicidae).
