Is Bob a Cana?

Postby Steph on Sun Jun 19, 2016 1:17 am

This is not the best picture ever, but it's the best one I could get of Bob's spire side.

Image

It looks to me like the sutures are sort of indented. And his opening is a different shape than what I was familiar with in the past. As far as I know, I've never seen a Cana in person before. But Bob doesn't seem like a 'regular' diffusa like I used to have before.

Thanks!

I would say "Bob" is certainly in the canaliculata complex.

Thanks pbgroupie -- and hello again! It's been a long time.

I hope things are all well with you. A bit sad to see how quiet it has become here.

It's quiet but still full of good information for newbies and the experienced alike. A lot of people stopped buying snails when permits were required, and then when the ban was partially lifted the suppliers were antsy about identifying and selling, so apple snails have gone out of fashion for most people. It's a shame because they are fascinating creatures. Thanks for coming back to visit.
