Varieties

Below is a compilation of the types I have, and others that can be found. I've borrowed better images from importers and others, until I take better pics myself. There is a bit of confusion between the 3 spotted species, white-, yellow-, and golden-spotted. I will try to clarify these more later.

Additional pictures and species can be found by clicking HERE.

A good friend follower has contacted me with solid information that this snail is also called "Thunderbolt Tylomelania" - Snails with Charm: Tylomelania" by Hans-Georg Evers, Amazonas magazine, Great Snails, Volume 2 Number 4, July/August 2013
