Over a ten-year period, Ian Killeen covered over 70% of the tetrads in Suffolk. The results of his survey (probably the most detailed in Britain) have been computerised; the SBIS database now holds over 45,000 records. The results were published in The Land & Freshwater Molluscs of Suffolk. (1992).

Further information on recording and identification can be found on the Conchological Society website.
