Abstract

Euglandina rosea (Ferussac, 1821) is a carnivorous snail native to the southeastern United States, including Florida (Hubricht, 1985; Wolfe and Brooks, 1968). It is known as a ground-dwelling terrestrial snail that feeds on terrestrial gastropods (Burch, 1962; Pilsbry, 1946). Introduced to Hawaii in 1955, it is one of the worst cases of an intended biological control agent attacking non-target species (Cowie, 2001). Exclosures keep it away from consuming remaining endemic snails, including the endangered Achatinella species (Stone, 1999).
