I'm looking at some other texts to see if I can't get a better picture and poking aroud the web, which you could do as well, and start compiling a list of potential species. You'll see though that even the pro's have references to Elimia sp. (which is probably the genus these guys are in).
There's some nice inventories from the Illinois River, and I think there's a gastropod book for Illioins from INHS. If you run into primary lit you want but can't get, send me title and author, and I'll grab it. If is says JSTOR, I can get them, and a lot of these are since they're published in AMN.
Snails are tough, man. At least with Unionids, you have something larger to work with.
