Abstract: The Mollusca are amongst the best known and probably easily recognizable group of invertebrates. This is mainly due to the fact that snails have long been studied by naturalists and their shapes and colours fascinated humans since prehistoric times. Because many species have been over-collected either as specimens for collections or for food many species have declined in numbers including some endemic species which may occur in a few square metres of area. The following article is about an endemic form of snail known as Mamo’s Door-snail (Muticaria macrostoma var. mamotica) found around the area of it-Toqba ta’ Kristu in Munxar, Gozo.
