this snail look identical to those on my basement wall every summer and fall.

A person on iNaturalist.org ID'd it as an Amber Snail in the Family Succineidae.

Nice sighting. That may be Succinea putris. Whatever species it may be, I tend to see this type of snail most frequently during the latter part of the spring melt.
