Brown Garden Snail: Cornu aspersum

 

snailAlthough this species is probably present in every garden in south east Wales, we hold less than 500 records of Brown Garden Snail. This species of snail is pretty unmistakable, with its large matt brown shell. More information on the ecology of Cornu aspersum is available on Arkive.

If you spot this species during August (or at any other time of year) please send us the record, ideally via SEWBReCORD. Instructions on how to submit records are available here.
