Moss snail, Lauria cylindracea, an easily overlooked tiny species which gives birth to live offspring.
Garden Snails, Helix aspersa (=Cantareus aspersus), unashamedly mate in the middle of your garden path throwing darts at each other.
Girdled Snails, Hygromia cinctella, likes walls. An introduced species since 1950, still expanding across Europe from the Mediterranean.
Kent snail, Monacha cantiana prefers drier places. This species, introduced in the UK during Roman times, is a very common snail in my local Wildlife Garden. They can be darker with pale speckling.
Glass Snails, Oxychilus draparnaudi, are carnivorous snails that have caused havoc on native snails when introduced outside the UK.
Amber Snails, Succinea putris usually live in very damp places, but can be also found away from water. They cannot completely retract their bodies inside their shells.
Brown Lipped Snails, Cepaea nemoralis are very polymorphic in colour and pattern.You might be lucky to have these beauties in the garden.
Have you noticed all the snails are facing toward the right? This is because most (90%) of all snail species have right-handed shells (dextral). Occasionally a left-handed individuals appear in populations of right handed snails. These face a problem when trying to mate, as the genital opening will face away from most other snails in the population. The genetics of shell handedness has been elucidated in some species and appears to be determined by mutations in a single gene, but the left-handedness trait is expressed not in the mutant, but in the resulting offspring.
