Found on stone wall on woodland edge near railway line.
No interactions present.
... it should come in handy for the French. Needs to be a bit bigger, though. ;-)
It is true - hold snail between thumb and finger, rub gently and position below nostril! (cf Ox. alliarius which smells so strongly that it clears the nasal passages). However, this specimen doesn't have a glossy uniformly brown shell so I wonder if it is an Oxychilus at all?

Thanks Steve. Really, those immature snails! Could explain why there was no garlic smell.
