A Snail

I looked under some loose bark the other day to see what I could find.  I was looking mostly for snails and only found a couple of live ones, mixed in with a dozen or so empty shells.

At this size snails are pretty hard to identify.  I think this one is Gastrocopta contracta.  It’s about the size of a grain of rice.
