Beddomeia fromensis is a freshwater snail occurring in tributaries of the Frome River, itself a tributary of the Ringarooma River, in northeast Tasmania. The species has a very narrow range, known only from six locations. The principal threats to B. fromensis are associated with forestry, mining and clearing, resulting in habitat modification or degradation. The species occurs in small streams which are afforded the least protection in areas subject to forest harvesting. B. fromensis may also be vulnerable to competition with the exotic snail Potamopyrgus antipodarum, a hydrobiid introduced from New Zealand. The principal management objectives for B. fromensis include preventing the loss or degradation of habitat at known localities, increasing public awareness of the species, and improving the species' reservation status.
