Photo of the day (168): Neopetraeus

It has been a while ago that I received some interesting pictures of living snails (last post here), but today I have some photos to share which show different Neopetraeus species from Peru. The fist one is Neopetraeus tessellatus (Shuttleworth, 1852) from Huaracpampa, Cascapara, Yungay, Ancash, 3000 m.

The second is N. cremnobates H.B. Baker, 1963, from Kiman Ayllu, Cañón del Pato, Ancash, 1800 m.

Both photographs with accompanying identifications were sent by Valentín Mogollón (Lima), and are here thankfully acknowledged.
