漆黒の中で映える色。
A color to shine in in jet black.

陸生の貝類において、これほどの美麗な種はなかなかいない。
とくにその緑がかった外観。身の紫。
しかし、この緑すらも「殻」(外套膜)の色ではなく、中の身の色だというから驚き。
There are easily no a kind of as beautiful as this terrestrial shellfishes. Especially, externals that the green drove. Purple of body. However, I am surprised to say that even this green is not a color of “Husk”  but a color of an inside body.

腰のあたりにあるのが、貝のふた。
これで身を収納した時にはふたをするのが、いわゆる「マイマイ」との違い。
タニシに近い仲間だということが理解してもらえるだろう。
It is a cap of the shellfish which is around of its waist. Cap it when the body is stored by this is a difference with so-called “Snail”. It is likely to be able to understand so that it is a companion near the mud snail.

昼間は身が外に出ておらず、写真を撮るとしたら夜。
しかし、下手にフラッシュを焚くと、見事な薄い色は吹き飛んでしまう。
そして彼らは非常にナイーブなので、ライトを当てるとすぐに引っ込んでしまう。
They do not hold the body out in the daytime. Therefore it is night if I take a photograph. However, their light color whitens when I use flash. And they stay in the husk immediately because they are very naive when I light it up with a light.
