Colour variations aside, the snail in the top image resembles little of any physa acuta I've ever laid eyes on, but chances are this other snail won't harm plants either.

Hmm, could well be. well discoved lol.

I found this pic on this website called biopix, the photographs there are really brilliant, and its easier to tell what is what; it looks like a close match in this pic.

I'd be kinda funny if he ended with the whole set lol.

My self I would kill for some Lymnaea Stagnalis (they look...cute. )

Ferret, could you please upload images with another hosting site? I can't see the pics. Compare the results between Physas sp. and Lymnaea stagnalis. The latter is even bigger.

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.

Thanks for all the input guys, really appreciate it. In the way of an update: I haven't seen any more of these snails since the original post.

Second pic is physas. First one looks like baby apple or trapdoor snail to me.
