I was very surprised to find this tiny snail in the garden under a Cornus mas leaf today….
I must admit I’d never heard of these so-called door slugs (køllesnegl) before – in the genus Clausilia. There are no reports of this genus previously in my kommune (Malvik). It is tiny, only about 10mm long!
Please let me know if you know which species this is!

Monster spring beauty tuber!

I was transplanting some Allium canadense bulbs today and disturbed this large spring beauty (Claytonia virginica) tuber only just below the surface! I’ve tried growing this species from different sources and in different parts of the garden, but it’s only in this shady place has it grown well, sourced from a woman in Marathon, Wisconsin in 2004! It has been spreading slowly in recent years and is totally hardy! So this tuber could have taken 14 years growing to this size! Must have a taste this autumn!
