Cecina manchurica is a species of sea snail that has a gill and an operculum, a marine gastropod mollusk in the family Pomatiopsidae.[2]

The specific name manchurica refers to Manchuria, the historical region where its type locality was situated.


This is an Endangered species (type I, CR+EN) in Japan.[3]

The type locality is "Olga and Vladimir Bays, Manchuria, under damp logs near the sea",[1] today in Primorsky Krai, Russia.


This species lives in very shallow water in littoral habitats, including decaying seaweed stranded on the beach.[2]
