Hi Marnhull Judging from the SW coast locality, and the white versus dark edge to the shell aperture, this snail is almost certainly Cepaea hortensis, NOT Cepaea nemoralis. The latter does occur in Newfoundland, especially on the Avalon Peninsula ... indeed, another of your photo sets does show Cepaea nemoralis. John Maunder

Hi Marnhill. Whoops. The Cepaea nemoralis photos were actually from Kevin. JOHN

Hi Marnhull. Another whoops. Sorry about misspelling your name. I'm new to this site ... I'll get the hang of it eventually. JOHN
