Proserpinid snail from Ecuador

Last week I received some pictures with a live snail photographed by Shannon Bowley in Mindo, Ecuador. She made the pictures during a walk at night, the best time to encounter snails anyway 🙂


I asked Ira Richling, specialist for this group, for an opinion about its identification; she told me “the most likely match I came up with would be Proserpinella cousini (Jousseaume, 1887), now perhaps better in the genus Archecharax”.

Many thanks to both ladies for sharing this interesting information.
