Nomenclatural notes
Not in INA. According to Andersen & Bailey (2002: 591), there has been controversy concerning the validity of two distinct species V. frigida and V. terrestris. - (17 Apr 2012) - Wendy Guiry

According to Christensen (1969: 16), uncertainty as to the proper application of Art. 13 of the Code of Nomenclature makes it doubtful whether the name frigida or the later name hamata should be used. - (18 Apr 2012) - Wendy Guiry

General environment
This is a freshwater/terrestrial species.
