An Illustrated Guide to the Land Snails of the British Isles
2nd updated edition. This laminated fold-out identification guide provides high-quality images of the land-snail fauna of the British Isles (99 species, 27 families, 61 genera), enabling convenient comparisons to be made between similar species, leading to quick, and secure, identifications. Most species can be identified from their shells, although some, such as members of the Succineidae (amber snails), can only be reliably separated on the basis of anatomical information, especially features of the reproductive system. In addition to snails that occupy the full range of outside habitats from woodland to gardens, also included are illustrations of 11 species that survive only in artificial habitats such as greenhouses and hothouses. Slugs are excluded and will be covered elsewhere
