From Staatsbosbeheer in The Netherlands:
The narrow-mouthed whorl snail, found now on Rottum, is rare in all of Europe, and threatens to become extinct in many countries. …
In The Netherlands, the little snail lives mainly in the dunes of Holland and Zealand, and prefers calcineous dune valleys and permanently humid places.
The little landsnail usually gets no bigger than 1,6 mm and looks like an egg-shaped beehive.
