No need to agree, though it is an observation. I'm half expecting an ID challenge or an iSpot refusal though!

    Likely ID
    Gathering (Escargatoire)
    Confidence: I'm as sure as I can be.
Species interactions

No interactions present.

Not much of a mouthful...

...but luckily I'm veggie anyway. Lovely selection. I was about to put a snail or two up as well, but I'm a novice on IDs of these. Anyway, just what is the collective noun for snails?

According to

An escargatoire, rout or walk of snails

Perhaps a spirality

Yes, that's the spirt Mark. But I am still wondrin' why Joe asked the obvious.
No mouthful there, though Joe - those are real coins.
Put up your snailies, there are plenty here who would advise you.
I am very interested in others' mini-snail exploits.
At the garden centre they are known as a crunch or a squelch (collective noun)
