Land snail

Terrestrial snail shell from the collection of Miss JE Linter. She bequeathed her collection containing over 15,000 shells to RAMM in 1909. She wrote ‘For many years I have been collecting exotic land shells, in fact, my collection is about as complete as it can well be, and I have spared no expense or labour in making it and keeping it up to date, by securing representatives in the finest condition of all new species found and described.’
