Saccinea tomentosa Pfeiffer, 1855
This species lives in New Zealand. These snails are found in both the North and South Islands, on aquatic plants in swamps, ponds and quiet waters generally, but not in fast-running streams. In Australia (in particular South-East New South Wales), this species was reported to serve as one of the most important intermediate hosts for liver fluke (Fasciola hepatica). 
One subspecies exists:
Lymnaea tomentosa is an intermediate host of Fasciola hepatica. Lymnaea tomentosa was also shown to be receptive to miracidia of Fasciola gigantica from East Africa, Malaysa and Indonesia under laboratory conditions.
