Description:

About 14mm shell-length. Found on lawn in early-morning sun after dry night. Fortunate to see it, but watch for overnighting toadlets when stepping out to feed the birds.

At first I thought it might be a peculiar Gulella (Hunter Snail), but resembles nothing in my Herbert & Kilburn. Hungry fella - ate great swathe of lettuce leaf on its wetted saucer in my study, so is clearly herbivorous.
