If you are viewing this page, you are likely searching for information on the snail species Euconulus polygyratus. You may have found that this species, as well as many other land snail species, unfortunately, has a minimal amount of reference material available for research purposes. The reason for this, is that the distribution of terrestrial gastropods is poorly studied, and therefore, ranges of many species are inadequately illustrated in today's literature (Douglas et al. 2010). Land snails are crucial for the proper functioning and overall health of forest ecosystems(Caldwell 1993). It is imperative that greater effort be made, in regards to both accounting for and  the preservation of these incredibly fascinating creatures. Lets begin learning more about this species, by clicking on the classification link, listed on the left side of this page.
