Liguus fasciatus

FLORIDA TREE SNAIL

Florida native

Florida Species of Special Concern
 

Florida tree snails, as their name implies, live mostly on trees of south Florida hammocks from Broward and Collier Counties south through the keys. The range also includes Cuba and the Isle of Youth (formerly Isle of Pines).
There are over 50 color forms of this snail in Florida. Having previously been classified as three different species, L solidus and L. crenatus are now considered to be different forms of Liguus fasciatus. Snails of the Liguus genus have a white, pink or jeweled tip.
Since being listed as a Florida species of special concern, it is illegal to collect either live or dead snails.
