It's a snail in of the genus Oxyloma, but not sure what species.
I found this on google. I noticed it looks just likethe one in the Youtube video, but I don't know if the video is ID'ed correctly.
As always thank you for the spotting of the day. Project Noah is such a wonderful place to see so much awesome life from all over the planet, and also such a great excuse to keep going out into nature.
To Mark: The little blue cup is Niphates digitalis (Pink vase sponge) It comes in variety of colors. I didn't take a photo to feature it though :-( Next time. http://www.portol.org/guide/sp_92.html
Not a 100% sure because the silhouetted photo. From very curved back legs and overall shape, I think it is this Species Hyalymenus longispinus of Broad headed bug. http://bugguide.net/node/view/107108/bgi... But look through some of the others.
I think it's one of these two from what I can see in your photo. I'm leaning towards the former but not really sure: Rhynchophorus cruentatus - Palmetto Weevil
Rhodobaenus quinquepunctatus - Cocklebur Weevil
