Young animals with spiral ridges may be confused with Littorina saxatilis. The species is epifaunal so loss of the substratum would also result in loss of the population. L. obtusata exhibited a variable geotaxis when out of water in the field, but a constantly negative geotaxis out of water in the laboratory, the rate of movement being slower when Fucus was the substrate provided. This the largest British periwinkle, with the shell reaching a maximum height of 52 mm.

The columella or central axis of the shell is typically white and the animal is recognizable in its juvenile stages by the transverse black barring of the tentacles which are rather flat and broad. Sexes are separate, and fertilisation is internal. Isle of Man wildlife records from 01/01/2000 to 13/02/2017.

The species tends to aggregate and form clusters in areas that are more favourable for them, such as rock pools, rather than drier areas. It was introduced to these waters in the mid 19th century from Western Europe and rapidly spread along the Northeast coast.

Littorina littorea has various biochemical adaptations that allow the stressful intertidal habitat to be exploited. Arter. Belfast: Ulster Museum. The species tends to aggregate and form clusters in areas that are more favourable for them, such as rock pools, rather than drier areas. The white outer lip is sometimes checkered with brown patches. This stems mainly from its ability to accumulate trace elements and compounds and consequential behavioural changes.
