Sub-fossil samples from Holocene overbank alluvium commonly contain Pupilla muscorum, and there is uncertaintly as to whether the species is representative of dry or wet ground. Multivariate analysis of 44 sub-fossil samples from overbank alluvium suggests that Pupilla is behaving as a dry ground species in such contexts, and that the species may be indicative of certain land-use regimes.
