This species was a long time considered as subspecies of Lymnaea stagnalis (Linnaeus, 1758). From the latter species, Lymnaea raphidia can be easily distinguished by much slimmer spire (Fig. 4b). The preliminary phylogeographic study (Vinarski et al. 2012) shows that populations from Albania and Italy attributed to Lymnaea raphidia form a separate clade, distinct from the two other sister clades which corresponds to Lymnaea stagnalis and Lymnaea fragilis, respectively.
A. and P. Reischutz (2009) mentioned Lymnaea raphidia (as Lymnaea stagnalis raphidia) from the Montenegrian (Virpazar) and Albanian (Shiroke) part of Skadar Lake.
