The Banbury Springs limpet (or lanx) occurs at four springs along the middle Snake River in south-central Idaho. The snail is known for its distinctive cinnamon-red, conical, pyramid-like shell. It has only been found in spring-fed, clear, cold, well-oxygenated water. The scale lanx is an aquatic pulmonate snail in the family Lymnaeidae. It has a complete circumferential muscle scar, easily distinguishing species in this family from other freshwater limpets (Burch 1989). This species has a large shell (11-16mm length, 7.5-9.5mm width, and 3-3.5mm height, Hannibal 1912; Henderson 1936).
