Megalobulimus copulation

Eduardo Vicente Fumarola was kind enough to send me some pictures, taken on 18 October this year during the morning hours in Salta, Argentina, of several snails copulating. He identified the species as Megalobulimus oblongus (Müller, 1774), which however, needs confirmation by study of some voucher specimens.
