Neohelix albolabris – New Brunswick

Neohelix albolabris, Spednic Lake Provincial Park, NB.

In June, at the annual 2-week BiotaNB event, held this year and last in Spednic Lake Protected Natural Area (and the adjacent Spednic Lake Provincial Park), Neohelix albolabris was found. Not apparently that common, I found a single, empty shell in an upland beech wood last year. This year, live snails were attracted to cat food and peanut butter bait used in small mammal traps, and another empty shell was found. Neohelix albolabris is the largest land snail in the BiotaNB area and the only polygyrid found.
