Bulimulus guadalupensis, the West Indian bulimulus;
Monroe county, Florida (27 November 2015).
The West Indian bulimulus is an air-breathing, terrestrial snail fairly well established throughout southern Florida and various stretches of the Caribbean (especially Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico). It’s fairly small and slow moving, but it’s also pretty good about scratching out a living within the tangles of South Florida. On iNaturalist, the current most-northern observation of this species in Florida is Bethune Beach, between Daytona Beach/Ormond (my home territory) and Merritt Island/Cape Canaveral. There have also been a range of observations reported from the Orlando area. They are most commonly observed, however, across the Southeastern coastline, from West Palm down through the Miami area.
