My friend, that had the left handed Cornu aspersa, just came back from
Sicily, where he had found these unidentifiable landsnail shells. As
the Sicilian Government wouldn't let him bring out live snails, he had
to only bring these back. Can you put them on your "Mystery Landsnail"
page for his identification. All shells were found in gardens of ancient
greek & Roman ruins in Salento, Above Palermo, Sicily in an area
of volcanic ruins in September 2006. Sizes are below for each photo.
If you get answers or suggestions of Identifications, please have them
reply to me at email@example.com
Thank you for your never-ending help.
Ideas or positive identifications to:
& 2. Helix
& 4. & 6 Theba
& 7 Eobania
1, 2) Helix aperta
3, 4 , 6) Theba pisania
5,7) Eobania vermiculata
all very common land snails in Sicilia
