White-lipped snail - Cepaea hortensis
Sindal, North Denmark Region, Denmark
The white-lipped banded snail has a glossy, smooth shell, which is typically yellow in colour but may be pink, brown or red, with up to 5 variable spiral dark bands and an obvious white lip around the aperture. Occasionally a dark-lipped form of this species may arise, which makes identification more complicated. It is similar in appearance to the brown-lipped banded snail (Cepaea nemoralis), but it has a thinner shell, with more rounded whorls (2). The body of the snail is usually greenish-grey becoming yellow towards the rear (2).
