A variant of a White-lipped snail, (Cepaea hortensis) atop a Moon Daisy (Leucanthemum vulgare).This variant didn’t have a lot of colour and contained no markings. Its shell was so thin it was possible to see the innards moving.Common to western and central Europe. This snail is an air-breathing mollusc.
