Biomphalaria is a genus of air-breathing freshwater snails, aquatic pulmonate gastropod mollusks in the family Planorbidae, the ram's horn snails and their allies. Biomphalaria is the type genus of the tribe Biomphalariini. Taphius is a synonym for Biomphalaria. The shell of this species, like all planorbids is sinistral in coiling, but is carried upside down and thus appears to be dextral.

  • Biomphalaria es un género de caracoles de la familia Planorbidae. Tiene importancia médica porque las especies de este género pueden ser huéspedes intermediarias (vectores) de Schistosoma mansoni, el parásito causante de la esquistosomiasis. Entre los principales huéspedes naturales de Schistosoma mansoni están: B. tenagophila, B. glabrata y B. straminea. (es)
  • Biomphalaria é uma gênero de caramujo da família Planorbidae. Possui importância médica pelas espécies deste gênero serem hospedeiras intermediárias (vetores) do parasita causador da esquistossomose. No Brasil, os principais hospedeiros naturais do Schistosoma mansoni são: B. glabrata, B. tenagophila e B. straminea. (pt)
