Critical Habitat of the Hotwater Physa (Physella wrighti) Order

The Hotwater Physa (Physella wrighti) is a small freshwater snail found only within the Liard River Hot Springs complex located in Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park in northeastern British Columbia. While there is currently no evidence of a population decline, Hotwater Physa has a very small and localized distribution in Canada which makes it vulnerable to the risk of extinction due to human activities or catastrophic events.
