It was about 1/8 of an inch across, curled up in the shell, where it didn't stay long. This was a very active snail, or at least a snail in a hurry to get out of the light, constantly on the move, even seconds after I had been handling it, always waving its head from one side to the other.
I have never seen a land snail with this spotted mantle, that flows out and over the edge of the shell, like a moon snail's does, in the ocean, nor one that never extends its eyestalks and lower tentacles more than these rounded bumps. I couldn't find any snails like it on the web.

I subjected him to lights and house warmth for a few minutes, then took him out to the garden and the rain.
