A colleague of mine found this snail on the street in the middle of town and 'dumped' it with me. It seems a happy fellow, snailing around in my terrarium. But what kind of snail is it? It's house is pale beige with at the entrace a translucent part, it's body is pale and the shell is about 11 mm. I live in Belgium. If I look around, it COULD be a Hygromia Cinctella. Can anyone confirm this or inform me what else it could be?
juvenile specimens often are tricky........ . Difficult to say. I'm not sure about the species, but I don't think it's Hygromia cinctella, because even juvenile specimens of this species have a "keel" (a prominent edge at the periphery of the whorl) and I can't see it. Furthermore, the soft parts shining through the shell are usually darker in Hygromia cinctella.
Sorry, sometimes it's difficult....... . Perhaps we can tell the species at adult age.
