Otala lactea

Description:

Invasive Species, Oregon. I'm shaky about the ID, so feel free to correct me. I have two pictures, each a different color (different species?)

These are *absolutely not* milk snails. Both snails pictured are *Monadenia* species. I have occasionally seen them with white/bleached shells similar to the one you've catalogued. But these are not *Otala*.

I've moved this lovely snail from the Arthropod category to the Other category for you. Snails and slugs are Mollusks. Arthropods have an exoskeleton and jointed limbs in at least one phase of their life. Think dragonfly, bee, crab, and ant.
