ABSTRACT
Ovoviviparous Pupilla muscorum L. incubates 1–8 embryos throughout the year. The embryos are produced in an assembly-line fashion and released when fully formed, with a maximum in June–August. The snails reach maturity in their second or third season and probably most reproduce only during one season.
