During the hunting of the Mammalian fossils in a limestone cave at Tuizi, Kuzuu-mati, TOKUNAGA, TAKAI and NAORA have collected a small lot of terrestrial snails and submitted them to me for determination. The snails are found associated with a molar tooth of Palaeoloxodon in a Pleistocene fissure filling deposit and hence there is the least possibility of mixing the recent snails with the fossils. Most of the specimens before hand are not well preserved. However, as illustrated in figs. 1 a-c on plate: 18 (7), some traces of colour patterns are still retained in a specimen of CyClophol us herklotsi.
