Engraved covert, Fumonelix orestes


Welcome! You’re interested in snails, I see. That’s fantastic; you’re in the right place. This webpage is about the land snail Fumonelix orestes (Hubricht, 1975) which is commonly known as the Engraved covert and used to be known as Mesodon orestes, mesos- "middle", odon - "tooth". Unfortunately, there is little information on this particular snail, so much of the information in this website is about the broader levels of Classification.
