Old World clones can be divided into several clades – Pacific, introduction as a biological control for the medically important Melanoides tuberculata was regard, the superior survivorship of M. tuberculata populations and the high densities they are apparently able to sustain have recommended Melanoides The common name comes from the presence of reddish spots on the otherwise greenish-brown shell.
