Hi all ! I don't know the exact species of this snail and I need your help ; I think it is Succineidae family.

I like the orange and green contrast which I found very "graphic" and want to share with you.

Can't help you with an ID Thierry, but will congratulate you for this fine capture. A lovely, tiny and pleasantly coloured snail indeed!

Bon Matin mon ami,
excellent composition, and the vivid but natural red/orange colour of the shell against the green background makes this a very eye catching image..overall quality is very good too...well done!

Très belle capture - je ne connais pas cet escargot non plus. On dirat un escargot de Tchernobyl! En effet, une belle contraste dans les couleurs avec un jeu très sympa sur le profondeur de champs. J'aime beaucoup.

I think this is a Succinea putris.

Succinea putris is a species of small, air-breathing land snail, a terrestrial pulmonate gastropod mollusc in the family Succineidae, the amber snails.


Hi Thierry. I have never seen a snail in this color. Good shallow depth image in excellent focus. Well done and have a nice day. Regards. Jusni
