French Curves

German mollusk

Cresting the rise

I would like to present a sample of festive copse snails, or gefleckte schnirkelschnecke. They are found from Finland through southern Germany and further into Mittel Europa.

Copse snails are Arianta arbustorum, of the family Helicidae.

European snail

Highly variegated!
