Catinella arenaria and Vertigo geyeri have been found alive in a base-rich fen near Orton, Cumbria, England. This site, which is the first British locality for living V. geyeri and the second for living C. arenaria, resembles the Irish fens where both C. arenaria and V. geyeri can he found, rather than the British site for C. arenaria at Braunton Burrows, Devon.
