Consistent with results found in terms of adaptation, habitat and reproduction of  species Euconulus polygyratus , I found it difficult to find nutrition information specifically pertaining to this species. It is known, however, that gastropods(the taxon class of the Euconulus polygyratus) feeding habits are as varied as their shapes and habitats, but all use some adaptation of the radula (Eisenhour et al. 2007). The radula is a rasping, protrusable ,tongue like organ. It is  a ribbon like membrane on which are mounted rows of tiny chitinous teeth that point backward(Eisenhour et al. 2007). The picture below is a microscopic image of a radula.



A gastropod would use the radula for scraping food (such as algae found on rocks), or possibly for the purpose of ripping apart tissue of prey, as can be seen with the carnivorous gastropods. Most air breathing snails are herbivorous, but some eat earthworms and other snails.(Eisenhour et al. 2007).
