Trochulus striolatus (Pfeiffer, 1828)
The somewhat flattened (low spire) shell of the strawberry snail measures 6.5-9 mm high and 11-15 mm wide, with 6 convex whorls. The growth ridges of this species are very prominent. The shell is dark brown or red-brown. Light brown spots/flecks may be present. The umbilicus (navel) is obvious. The shells of juveniles of this species are hairy, but the shells of adults lack hair.
Europe: England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Netherlands, Slovakia
This species is often associated with human dwellings (e.g., in gardens, on buildings/hedges). As its common name suggests, this species is a pest of strawberries.
