Craven Door Snail

From Hutton Roof Crags, a now rare snail

  1. What beautiful house it has!

    It seems to be described as widespread, yet your description of it being rare aligns with an almost complete lack of observations across platforms. So very thinly spread across a big region, perhaps?

    1. In the UK I would say very restricted, our northern limestone pavements - see

      & here - the photo is 12 years old - This was the 1st I have seen and I've been on the limestone pavements a lot this year.

      1. Thanks, so looks like a local micro habitat plus probably it being overlooked. Posted 16 days ago
