Green Spiral

Rhinocochlis nasuta - Kinabalu National Park, Malaysia

 

These pretty green terrestrial snails were fairly common in the montane forests at Kinabalu national Park. They are the only member of the genus Rhinocochlis, and in my opinion are one of the prettiest snail species. I'm fairly certain this species is endemic to Borneo, I cant seem to find any mention of them being found elsewhere.
