Default ID - Snail

Just has seen this little 2mm snail pop out for the 1st time and would like double checking on what I think it might be. Maculotriton serriale
This guy should be killed I believe, correct?




...and as per Uncle Google: http://www.google.com/search?q=%22Ma...w=1921&bih=962


Thanks for the input!

It could be a columbellid snail, which is beneficial

Could be this. I had a bunch. Great little snails. They leave little egg sacks on everything
