Daedalochila postelliana is probably one of the most interesting snails found in the United States. When a snail has been found it can be incredibly challenging to pin point what kind of snail you actually have. This website is designed to help identify if the snail found is Daedalochila postelliana.

 There is approximately 40,000 species of snails in the world.  That being said, it can be challenging to identify a single snail when some look nearly identical. There is still a lot of research that must be done to develop a more concrete understanding of snail diversity.
