GARDEN SNAIL DESCRIPTION
Cornu aspersum, known by the common name garden snail, is a species of land snail. As such it is a terrestrial pulmonate gastropod mollusc in the family Helicidae, which include the most commonly familiar land snails. Of all terrestrial molluscs, this species may well be the most widely known. In English texts it was classified under the name Helix aspersa for over two centuries, but the prevailing classification now places it in the genus Cornu.
Cornu aspersum is native to the Mediterranean area and western Europe, but whether deliberately or accidentally, humans have spread it to temperate and subtropical areas world wide. The snail is relished as being edible, but it is widely regarded as a pest in gardens and in agriculture, especially in regions where it has been introduced accidentally and where snails are not eaten as a rule.
