The animal on the cover of RADIUS is a Dolium shell. This shell is that of Orcula Dolium, one of a small family of snails. Dolium live in leaf litter or on mossy rocks on mountains such as the Alps and the Carpathians. Their shells are cylindrical, and they have rounded mouths and teeth. Their color varies from yellowish to reddish brown.
