A New Snail “Entadella kilchomani” – Scotch Whisky News :-)

A new land snail species was named after Kilchoman Distillery. The new species was collected by researchers of The Natural History Museum, London during an expedition to northern Vietnam. The specimens were examined by land snail expert Barna Páll-Gergely, and were finally described as a new species of science. The snail was named Entadella kilchomani after the favourite whisky distillery of the author. Please see attached image.
