This snail in upright-down position was photographed by Dallas Bishop in Peru, San Martin, Pumarinri, near R??o Huallaga in early June this year.
Bill Frank sent me some pictures of a hatchling of the Jacksonville Bulimulus species. He tried to let it crawling, but to no avail. Still interesting to see this tiny shell of about 2 mm.

Some time ago I reported on a mysterious Bulimulus having been found in and near Jacksonville, Florida (see my posts dd. 17-08-2009 and 05-07-2010 on my old blog at www.ashbreure.nl).

In my post of July 23 I mentioned the new book by Linares and Vera, presenting a catalogue of the land and freshwater molluscs in Colombia. Recently I received the book through the courtesy of Edgar Linares and Tim Pearce (the latter kindly arranged the shipment). Having read now the book, I can supplement my comments.
