The fluted-shell is generally in the Mississippi River drainage, including the Tombigbee River system. To the north it occurs in the St. Lawrence system from north of Lake Superior to Lake Champlain and the Ottawa River. In the Hudson Bay drainage it is found in the Red and Winnipeg systems.

In general, L. costata is sporadically distributed where it is found. In Michigan the fluted shell generally occurs in small to medium sized rivers in both the upper and lower peninsulas.
