Description

I think I just have to abandon the whole covered umbilicus trait and start relying strictly on the sculpture to tell this species apart from H. arrosa. Pilsbry notes (and illustrates) that the umbilicus is quite variable in nickliniana, while the sculpture of oblique bumps remains the same across subspecies (though I've already seen great range in the length of those bumps). H. arrosa never seems to have those bumps, at least in Pilsbry's descriptions, and always seems to be somewhat malleate, as shown in these photos: http://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=uc1.31822013176466;view=1up;seq=137.

This live individual was found on soil in a shaded, moist, grassy patch adjacent to some chaparral.
