Page 380 - M. albolabris, Say ; they were white, adhering together very slightly, flaccid, and apparently not entirely filled with fluid. During the succeeding night the number had increased to about fifty, and in a few hours they became full and distended. As the snail now began to devour the eggs, he was obliged to remove it. On the 29th of July all the eggs were hatched...
Page 381 - The young snails had li whorls; the umbilicus was open; the head, eye-peduncles, and tentacles were bluish-black,' and the other parts whitish and semi-transparent. They immediately began to feed, and made their first repast of the pellicle of the eggs from which they had just emerged. They grew rapidly, and before the middle of October, when they went into winter quarters, they had increased their bulk four or five times beyond its original measurement. Jaw as usual in the genus; 15 ribs.
Page 420 - Shell depressed; epidermis yellowish horn color, smooth, shining, with very minute lines, not breaking the smoothness of the surface; whorls five; suture not much impressed; aperture transverse, scarcely oblique, obliquely lunar, with a thick, white testaceous deposit around its whole inner surface, a little distant from the margin; peristome thin, acute, fragile, its ends somewhat converging, the columellar margin reaching to the center of the base, subdilated above; umbilicus small; base rather...
Page 430 - The collar is deeply tinged with the coloring matter which ornaments the shell, and which is sometimes secreted in such profusion, as to give a saffron tinge to the trace which it leaves on objects over which it crawls. It is distributed over the animal, and arranged in minute points, which are most thickly clustered on the margin, and on the glandular tubercles of the surface.

Page 379 - ... open, deep, not wide, exhibiting all the volutions, slightly contracted by the reflected lip ; base rounded, with the striae distinct, converging into the umbilicus.
Page 434 - Ward. Plate 4, fig. 16. Shell widely umbilicated, small, depressed, thin; epidermis whitish, immaculate; suture distinctly impressed; whorls more than four, convex, with very fine, oblique, parallel s-triae, which become obsolete on the base; aperture oblique...
Page 373 - ... peristome subreflected at its columellar extremity, simple above, and in some specimens considerably depressed near its junction with the outer whorl; columella with a thin callus, the edge of which connects the upper and lower extremities of the peristome.
Page 415 - ... the umbilicus and the shape of the aperture are the same in both. But the principal distinction consists in the spiral lines which revolve on the whorl, intersecting the striae of growth, but so minute as hardly to be perceptible to the naked eye, yet present in every specimen which I have examined.
