Male or Female Apple Snail

I am wondering if there is a way to distinguish the sex of an apple snail.

Thanks

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

No if you're referring to diffusas. It's difficult to explain with canas but males usually have much wider mantle than females.
