Florida Tree Snail

Found a beautiful little tree snail today. This one was on my gardenia plant.
Can anyone help me ID it ???


  1. If the shell tip is pink it is a rare florida tree snail, Liguus Fasciatus. The white of the shell should be near a cream. Save the shells for proper identification when found. Do not pull off dormant snails attached to trees, that would kill them.

  2. I'm the one who found one too. I looked it up on Wikipedia, and it doesn't seem to match the description of any Florida tree snails..... close, but no cigar.... check out


  3. Turns out this is a Florida Lined Tree Snail.
    Drymaeus multilineatus
