Oregon Forestsnail Hanging Out?

Land snail, possibly an Oregon Forestsnail, hanging out.  According to a UBC webpage, these snails prefer habitats that have big leaf maple trees and stinging nettle plants.  We have both in our yard.

  1. Hi again! It’s Lea from twitter! You are in Oregon right? The habitat you described sounds typical of Oregon Forestsnail – would you be able to get some more photos? If you could get a shot of the umbillicus, that would be helpful. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Umbilicus_(mollusc)

    I am in BC, so I am definitely not up on the Oregon snails, but I will do my best to find out about this one! Fun!

    Feel free to contact me with the email address above.
