Abstract

In "Land and Fresh Water Shells,'' Part I, by W. G. Binney and T. Bland, 1869, the mollusk to which I invite your attention is called Helix cooperi. In "Manual of American Land Shells," by W. G. Binney, 1885, this little mollusk is honored with the following synonymy: Helix strigosa, Gould; Anguispira strigosa, Tryon; Helix cooperi, W. G. Binney; Anguispira cooperi, Tryon; Helix haydeni, Gobb, Patula strigosa. W. G. Binney; Anguispira bruneri, Ancy. In this work Mr. Binney uses the second name proposed by himself, viz: Patula strigosa. Inasmuch as the regions inhabited by this creature are quite diverse in regard to climate and food, it would seem most likely a considerable variation in size, form and color would necessarily follow. It appears to be at home throughout the Rocky Mountain region in the United States.
