Catascopia terebra (Westerlund, 1885) (formerly known as Catascopia occulta)[2][3] is a species of air-breathing freshwater snail, an aquatic pulmonate gastropod mollusk in the family Lymnaeidae, the pond snails.


Some authors classify this species as Stagnicola terebra, because the genus Catascopia Meier-Brook & Bargues, 2002 should not be distinguished based on DNA analysis only (genera should be distinguished morphologically and anatomically).[4]


This species of snail is found in the Czech Republic in two localities only: in a small temporary pool near Kladruby nad Labem in the Eastern Bohemia and in temporary pool near the inflow of the Dyje River into the Morava river in Moravia,[5][6] Germany, Poland and other areas.


It inhabits freshwater bodies.
