English term or phrase: operculate snail
An operculate snail has an asymmetrical body with a
spiral shell. Its muscular foot is used for movement. A
small plate on the upper side of the foot can be used
to seal the shell when the snail's body is drawn inside.
An operculate snail breathes with internal gills. It has
two eyes, each at the base of a sensory stalk. The
mantle secretes the shell."
