Neil was surprised to find an all-yellow individual this far north. Apparently the position of the air hole with respect to the mantle can be diagnostic, as can the presence of dirt along the tail end.

An example of what looks to me like an intermediate Helminthoglypta. From the photos I took it seems like lip of the aperature curves more in H. arrosa, which would suggest arrosa for this one, though the umbilicus seems half covered.

near San Andreas Lake, San Mateo County, CA, USA (Google, OSM)

Description

In "northern San Mateo county" there are supposedly two species of Helminthoglypta, H. arrosa and H. nickliniana. The former has an open umbilicus (the hole in the middle of the spiral of the shell when viewed from below), while the latter has a flag of the aperture covering the umbilicus. This and many others were found at the bottom of a slope. Coast live oak was the dominant tree.
