Lance Aplexa
Aplexa elongata (Say, 1821)

New York State Distribution [-]
This snail formerly occurred statewide. By the late 1960s, it no longer occurred in the Susquehanna watershed, and Jokinen (1992) only found it in two widely scattered locales, one near Plattsburgh and the other in the town of Wallkill. The current distribution in New York is unknown, but it may very well be extirpated from the state.

Global Distribution [-]
This is a boreal species, ranging coast to coast from Washington to New York (with a single outlier in south-central Pennsylvania), south to Colorado and north to Alaska. Many older historical records for this species reside in museums from as far south as Virginia, but it was not discovered in Connecticut in the late 1970s.
