I found a tiny snail on a tree in our yard a few months ago, but it's different to yours. http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/101... I wouldn't have the first idea where to start looking for an ID for that one, but your snail resource is great!!!! I think you've helped me find an ID for a monster snail we found in our yard (I haven't posted the spotting yet). Not quite sure what to think of the Crikey steveirwini species though... ; )

I spotted a similar one, maybe the same. There were several on the leaves of a roadside sapling infested with shell lerps. I think they eat the lerps.
