Common semi-slug (Parmacochlea sp.) either furca or balios
This is probably the second most common gastropod we see in the Cairns Botanic Gardens on Let’s Go Buggin Tours. They seem halfway between a snail and a slug. They have a fleshy hump that almost looks as though the shell has fallen off. For a lot of people on tours this is the first time they’ve ever heard of a ‘semi slug’ and they often are quite amused by the concept of this half-half gastropod.
Macgillivray’s Treesnail (Rhynchotrochus macgillivrayi)
Another endemic snail to the Wet Tropics, this snail is quickly becoming a favourite of mine due to its gorgeous shell shape and coloration. Unfortunately, I’ve only seen them sleeping so this species will be on my wish-list to see slithering around showing its full body and head.
