Myosotella myosotis

Myosotella myosotis, common name the mouse ear snail, is a European species of small, salt marsh snail, a terrestrial pulmonate gastropod mollusk in the family Ellobiidae.

Description[edit]

For terms see gastropod shell.

The shell is yellowish to brownish, smooth or with fine striation. It is shiny. There are 7-8 slightly convex whorls.The apertural margin is white and usually with a white layer at the parietal side. The parietalis is very strong and horizonal and often a small second parietalis is present. The columellaris is strong and the umbilicus is usually covered.form denticulata has 3-6 short and thin folds (like drops) near the palatal margin at the inner lip.
