Courtesy of the Facebook page Novataxa, which describes and shows species new to science, here’s a lovely terrestrial snail whose particulars follow. A bit of Googling, though, shows that it’s not new, but was described in 1864!
Name: Blaesospira echinus
Location: Sierra de la Penitencia; found only in Cuba
